Minister & Board of Trustees

Our Minister

Dear Friends:

For more than 25 years, Unity Spiritual Center has been a loving, welcoming, spiritual community, uniting people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs. Unity honors all paths to Truth, offers a positive message, and a fresh approach to the teachings of Jesus. It is my absolute pleasure to serve as Sr. Minister of this community, where I have been a member for over five years.

Ordained an Interfaith Minister in 1988, I became involved with Unity in 1998 when I assisted Rev. Dolores Vetter in creating Unity Christ Church in Boonton, NJ. I had the honor of serving as acting Minister from February – September 2011, and as Co-Minister from 2005-2009. Since then I have been immersed in the Unity teachings, participated in various training programs, and completed all the requirements to enter the Licensing and Ordination Program through Unity Institute and Seminary, where I am currently enrolled. 

My personal mission and vision statement are: 

  • Mission Statement: “To empower and assist people in realizing and owning their Divinity so they can move forward to experience and know Oneness”
  • Vision Statement: “That all people will realize and know Oneness”

My heartfelt intention is to continue to make Unity Spiritual Center a haven for like-minded people by offering inspiring Sunday messages, as well as thought-provoking programs and workshops which assist all in the expansion of consciousness.

May the infinite love that is ever present in each of us continue to expand in your awareness, and may you always remember the Truth of your being.

Blessings,

Rev. Carmela
