With joyous music and words of solemn promise, we – the congregation of the First Unitarian Church of Providence – will install the Reverend Elizabeth Lerner Maclay as our eighteenth settled minister. The installation service reaffirms and formalizes the bond between minister and congregation that was implicit in the congregation’s vote to call and the minister’s acceptance of that call. Rev. Dr. Robert M. Hardies, senior minister of All Souls Church Unitarian in Washington, DC, will deliver the installation message. First Unitarian President Jay Glasson will lead the act of installation, a formal covenant between our new minister and the congregation. The celebration will feature music by Fred Jodry and the First Unitarian choir.
