Our pastor is the Reverend Diane Hoppe Hugo. Diane’s favorite part of ministry is the conversation and lively discussion around Bible study and theological issues. Throughout her life and ministry, she is committed to all aspects of inclusiveness. Originally from California, she earned a Masters of Divinity degree from Yale Divinity School. From there, she went on to serve congregations in New York City and New Jersey. For many years, she was a summer visitor in the congregation — little did she know one day she’d be our pastor!
As the mother of an autistic teenager and an artistic tween, Diane brings a unique perspective to our pulpit — she is also a former cocktail waitress and spent 8 years as a “stay-at-home mom” before she returned to parish ministry.
She resides in Brunswick along with her husband, Buckley J. Hugo and their children Tad and Maggie. Mr. Hugo founded Midcoast Advocacy which serves special needs children and their families. You may contact the pastor at email@example.com. She is also on Facebook.
