You are invited to celebrate Reverend Patt Herdklotz’s 9 years of service with our fellowship!
June 10th, 2018 10:30 am
In a special Sunday Service we will honor Reverend Patt through ritual, song, and words. A potluck feast will follow.
We are so grateful for the many gifts that Reverend Patt has shared with our Fellowship through difficult times and in wonderful times.
As Patt moves toward retirement and our growing fellowship explores other ministerial resources, we will take the time to recognize and celebrate her service to our congregation. Even though she will no longer be our minister, Reverend Patt remains a part of our community.
A note from Reverend Patt, June 4th, 2018:
Dearest UUFKC Friends,
I have been honored to worship with and provide support services for you for nine years–you are very dear to my heart.
At 71 years of age, I have been looking toward my truly being retired. The UUFKC Board has been considering new horizons for the Fellowship, including opening new ministerial possibilities. The Board and I agreed to this being my last year of service to the Fellowship. My last Sunday with you will be June 10, 2018, my closing service of this season. After June 10th, I must excuse myself professionally from any further activity with the UUFKC congregation, including rites of passage, worship and support services, and social visits. This is standard Unitarian Universalist protocol with all congregations, and it allows the congregation to explore new ministries and ministerial relationships. My absence will demonstrate my love for you, my respect for my ministerial colleagues, and my faith in a process that will allow you, the wonderful UUFKC, to blossom. I wish you all the best!
Our worship service June 10th will be a retrospective and celebration of my years with you. I hope you will come and celebrate our rich nine years together.
With all my love,
Yours in the Unitarian Universalist faith,
Rev. Patt Herdklotz
