Rev. Jason Santalucia has answered a call to serve a congregation in Connecticut.  With sadness, on June 25, the Hunter congregation gathered for a celebration of Jason’s eight years as our pastor.  With many happy memories of our years together, our church community sends prayers with Daisy, Jason, Miyun, and Jinju as they travel to their new home.

In July, Hunter Session began a search process for an interim minister.
