The First Congregational Church of Wareham celebrated the Installation of Rev. Philomena Hare, Board President for the Massachusetts Bible Society, on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021. Installation is a rite in the United Church of Christ that confirms and celebrates the relationship among a congregation, pastor, and the wider church.
Rev. Hare has been serving as pastor of the church since Sept. 2020. She earned a Master’s of Divinity from the Boston University School of Theology and a Master’s in Social Work from the Boston College School of Social Work. Before serving in Wareham, Hare served at the Federated Church in Hyannis.
