Reverend Hannah Petrie has served as Associate Minister since 2008. She preaches monthly and is responsible for an active and Hannah Petriewide array of social justice service opportunities and advocacy projects. Some current efforts include raising awareness of immigrant detainees, building bridges with our local Muslim community, creating safe space for LGBTQ youth, and massaging the homeless. She led feasibility efforts to launch Jericho Road Pasadena in 2010, now a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to capacity building of local non-profits with skills-based volunteers. Rev. Petrie loves to equip lay-leaders to be of service in our larger community to help make the world a better place.
Rev. Petrie graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry in 2004. A lifelong UU, she was affirmed, ordained (but not married) at her home church, North Shore Unitarian Church in Deerfield, IL. She married her Canadian husband Kit (who she met at UU young adult church camp) on Pender Island, BC in 2007, then named her son Pender in 2009. Her daughter Ada Lou arrived in 2011, and they all love to hike and splash in the mountains and streams of the San Gabriels above Altadena where they live.
