Ministerial Intern

Ann Kadlecek

Greetings From Your New Ministerial Intern!

I’m eager to begin my internship with you which will run half-time, September 2019 through May 2021. During our time together, I’ll be learning while preaching, providing pastoral care, participating in leadership activities, and supporting your social justice efforts. I’m grateful for the part that all of you will play in my formation as a Unitarian Universalist minister. Thank you!

My path to ministry started about 20 years ago as an increasingly involved church volunteer. I then become a religious educator, earned credentialed status, and served three different congregations over eight years as I discerned a call to ministry and gravitated toward interim work. I’m currently a student at Yale Divinity School and a candidate for Unitarian Universalist ministry.

Professionally, I’ve also been a molecular biologist, a patent attorney, and a middle school science teacher. I have two sons in their twenties, David and Michael, and two dogs. Maia is a hound mix and Pedro is a street dog from Mexico who recently retired from therapy dog work. We live on the shoreline now; you might see us around on hiking trails or beaches as we enjoy the beauty of this area.

I’m looking forward to sharing this transitional time with you and getting to know each of you!
