On July 1, Mary Breviglieri will begin serving West Granby United Methodist as its new pastor. Mary has been active in the Methodist church for over 25 years.
Her strengths are interpersonal skills and expertise in teaching. On both the local and Connecticut District level, Mary has been leading the effort to train and certify Lay Servant Ministers in areas ranging from preaching to providing pastoral care. She has a talent for equipping people in the local church to help them serve more effectively in specific ministry areas. In person, she is warm and engaging, and it is clear that she has a big heart for others.
Mary has faithfully served the denomination on a regional level for years, working on various committees including the District Board on Laity, Nominations Committee, and the Committee on Superintendency. More recently, she has been active in immigration issues and is helping persons to navigate the legal system in order to become legal residents. West Granby Methodist opens its arms wide to welcome their new pastor and prays that she will be a great blessing to the entire community in the days ahead.
