Director of Religious Education Resigns

Dear UUFEC Members and Friends,

It is with great sadness that I announce the resignation of our beloved Director of Religious Education, Sophia Lopez, effective the end of December. Sophia joined us in the fall of 2019 and kept our children’s RE program going strong through the pandemic. We are so fortunate to have benefitted from her creative, energetic leadership!

We support Sophia in following the highest professional standards laid out by the Liberal Religious Educator’s Assoc., the professional group for UU Religious Educators. Their standards include a time of extended absence following the end of such service. This is to protect Sophia’s interests and to allow the congregation to develop a strong relationship with a new religious education professional.

We are deeply grateful for her amazing ministry and we will miss her along with Randy, Athena, Helena and Dorian. We hope to hold a celebration to honor Sophia and her work when we are able to meet in our building again.

Jane Park
UUFEC President
