"When in our Music God is Glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried Alleluia! How often making music, we have found a new dimension in the world of sound, as worship moved us to a more profound Alleluia! Let every instrument be tuned for praise! Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise! And may God give us faith to sing always, Alleluia!" - Fred Pratt Green (Mk. 14:26)

Leadership Council Chair

I've been a member of the United Parish of Upton for nearly 20 years, participating in youth group, deacons, books groups, the Community Supper and Faith in Action. I live in Hopkinton with my wife Carol. Our two grown children, Jake and James, grew up in the United Parish and developed lasting friendships here. I feel blessed to be part of this wonderful congregation and am grateful to be in the company of such a loving and caring group of people.
