All Souls' New Interim Minister

We are so excited to announce that Rev. Kathleen Rolenz will join us for the next two years as interim minister, starting August 1!

Rev. Rolenz joins us from the UU Church of Annapolis, where she is finishing a period as their interim minister. After interviewing a number of well-qualified candidates, the Interim Minister Search Committee unanimously selected her, after being impressed with her presence in the pulpit as a gifted preacher and writer, her work helping her current church actively implement the 8th Principle, and her experience aiding churches as they improve their governance systems.

Rev. Kathleen Rolenz

For more information about Rev. Rolenz, visit her website (, where she has posted a message for the congregation of All Souls.

The site also includes sample sermons, podcasts, and statements on her experience with and understanding of worship, liturgy, faith formation, pastoral care, governance, finances, anti-racism and anti-oppression commitment, and social justice.

The Search Committee particularly recommends the following two sermons: “Is Forgiveness the Only Option?,” preached at the UU Church of Annapolis on September 16, 2018, and “Stealing Jesus,” a sermon Rev. Lorenz preached as a guest minister at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa on February 10, 2013. We are extremely confident in her abilities and look forward to working with her.
