Rev. Rosemary, a lifelong spiritual pilgrim, is delighted to have found the beautiful spiritual community that is Unity Center of Peace.
Rosemary grew up Irish Catholic in Rhode Island, and entered the convent immediately after graduating from high school. Despite her love for things spiritual, she became aware that her spiritual path did not follow prescribed Catholic beliefs, and she finished college outside the convent.
After graduating, she received a Fulbright scholarship to study and teach in France. While there, she did Masters and doctoral work in psychology and linguistics. After returning to the U.S., she finished her doctorate in Psycholinguistics (Psychology of Communication) at St. Louis University. She lived in Missouri for 35 years, as a wife and mother, and also as professor and administrator at St. Louis Community College. She worked with area schools to create Service Learning programs that engaged students in serving poor communities for class credit. During those years, she also studied and practiced Unity principles and spirituality.
Since retiring from teaching, Rev. Rosemary has become an internationally certified homeopathic practitioner, and a Board certified chaplain and spiritual counselor. She has also fulfilled her lifelong calling to ministry by being ordained both as an Interfaith minister and as a Unity minister and teacher. Rev. Rosemary is delighted to serve as co-minister of Unity Center of Peace.
