Welcome to Our Interim Pastor!

Rev. Mary Olney-Lloyd is currently Pastor of Lake City Christian Church, Disciples of Christ in Seattle.  She has standing in the UCC Pacific Northwest Conference and in the Northwest Region Christian Church, Disciples of Christ.  She has been a pastor for over 27 years and has both training and experience as an interim pastor.   Mary has a Master of Divinity from San Francisco Theological Seminary and a Master of Music in organ performance from the University of Cincinnati.  She also has training, education, and experience in Clinical Pastoral Care and congregational pastoral care. 

Pastor Mary believes strongly in participation by the laity in the worship service and also encourages children to participate.  She has been active in her community and has helped to enhance current missions of the churches she has served.  She is active in the greater church and previously worked with Rev. Linda Petrucelli of Hilo Coast UCC, who served Holy Cross during Pastor Tom’s sabbatical, on disaster relief projects.  Mary looks forward to participating in worship music and in music groups in the community.  She and her husband Gary are looking forward to their stay in Hilo.  Gary is interested in birding, music, astronomy and singing in the choir.  We tentatively expect them to arrive in Hilo on January 15, 2014.
