Our Minister

Reverend Mary has served as minister at Unity of Roseville since 2011. Born and raised in Detroit, MI, she moved to Sacramento where she attended City College and California State University, Sacramento. Earning a bachelor's degree in liberal studies and a teaching credential, Mary taught elementary school in the Sacramento area.

Invited to attend a Unity church service, Mary eagerly embraced the teachings and began to volunteer in many capacities, before becoming director of their youth & family ministry. She credits her background in Unity, and teaching school, with leading her to discovering the call to ministry.

"The world is our classroom, as Myrtle Fillmore reminded us, and I discovered it in my own classroom of 2nd graders. They truly inspired me to deepen my soul's journey, which combined with classes offered at my church, led me to become a minister."

After completing the ministerial education program at Unity in Missouri, Rev. Mary was licensed and ordained in 2003. She served in ministries in Thousand Oaks, CA, in Sacramento, CA, and continues to provide spiritual leadership today: leading Sunday worship services and other sacred ceremonies, as well as teaching spiritual classes and providing spiritual counseling & companioning.

Rev. Mary has served on the licensing & ordination team at Unity; on the board at Unity West Central Region; and is a graduate of the Spiritual Direction Program through Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute.

"My life was transformed by the principles we teach in Unity. I believe that everyone can change their lives for the better by practicing Truth Principles. The importance and value of spiritual community, I believe, powerfully establishes a more peaceful, loving, inclusive lifestyle of connection and sense of belonging - that raises the collective consciousness of non-duality."
