Alex Jensen, First Parish’s Intern Minister, will be ordained into Unitarian Universalist ministry on Sunday, June 6, 2021, at 3 p.m. First Parish shares the honor of ordaining Alex with Mission Peak UU Congregation in Fremont, Calif., the congregation he joined in his early teens. Together, the two congregations and many of Alex’s colleagues will bestow the title, Reverend, upon him in a service of ritual, music, and affirmation. The virtual service will be held via Zoom.

Alex has served as First Parish’s intern minister for two years, with his time ending this June. “He quickly became a cherished leader in the congregation and has been instrumental throughout the pandemic to the community and staff of First Parish,” said Rev. Dr. Stephanie May.

Alex has been called to be the new minister of the UU Congregation of Grand Traverse in Traverse City, Mich. this fall. The First Parish staff and congregation wish him great happiness and fulfillment as he takes this important step forward.
