Background & Philosophy
First ordained in 1969 in the State of Maine, I renewed my ordination in May of 2004 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts when I learned that, with the decision to allow same sex marriage in the Commonwealth, there were officiants refusing to perform wedding services.
As a firm believer in human rights and in full agreement with the decision of the Judicial Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I feel obligated to provide anyone seeking to be married in Massachusetts a legal, official, and sanctioned wedding.
Although raised as an Eastern Orthodox Christian, I have studied a number of other religious doctrines and have chosen for myself a faith and belief system that incorporates those principles and practices that express my own personal spiritual self.
As a minister, ordained by the Universal Life Church, whose sole tenet is for its ministers to do what is 'right,' I have the opportunity to provide a truly non-sectarian service to those that seek spiritual expression for life's important moments: births, baptisms, marriages, commitment ceremonies, renewal of marriage vows, dedications, funerals and other rites of passage.
As a non-sectarian minister, I never impose my faith or belief system or incorporate them in my services. I willingly work with you to develop a service and ceremony that is an expression of your beliefs and spirituality.
