Installation of Rev. Theresa I. Soto: “The World’s on Fire (and We Still Fall in Love)”
Sunday, April 25, 4:00 to 5:30 PM

Please save the date and watch your email inbox for your invitation to the installation service for Rev. Theresa Soto! Installation of a new minister usually takes place shortly after their arrival to a new church. As we have adapted to the pandemic and emerge to continue to build a new future together, we have much to be grateful for. This unique virtual event combines the installation ritual and community celebration into one experience, where we will express and strengthen our commitments to each other while ritually sharing food and treats. Here’s a video from Rev. Theresa encouraging you to join in! Please email office@uuoakland.org if you do not receive an invitation.
