The Rev. Sean Parker Dennison has taken over as interim minister at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Luis Obispo County, replacing the Rev. Helen Carroll, who left in June.
Dennison graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry in 2000, and served seven years in Salt Lake City as minister of the South Valley Unitarian Universalist Society.
In 2005, having outgrown its facility on Foothill Boulevard, the Fellowship purchased land in Edna Valley and began plans to develop a new church home.
While that move remains pending, the congregation’s 200 members and friends are meeting at 2074 Parker St. in San Luis Obispo for Sunday services and religious education for children and teens, as well as activities throughout the week.
Established in 1952, the congregation is a founding member of Central Coast Clergy and Laity for Justice, an interfaith alliance promoting peace and justice for all, and has taken a lead role as an ally to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
