UUJAZ is delighted to uplift news of the ministerial ordination of Hanne Stone Brockie, who partnered with us as Granite Peak UU Congregation's Social Justice Coordinator.
Hanne is a lifelong religious and spiritual seeker, and a longtime member of the Unitarian Universalist faith. She completed her Masters of Divinity at Starr King School for the Ministry in Dec. 2021. Her home congregation, Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Prescott, AZ hosted her ceremony of ordination into the community of ministry in accordance with the UU tradition affirming that congregations choose to ordain ministers. The ceremony was on April 16, 2022.
As GPUUC's Rev. Patty Willis wrote, "We are thrilled that Hanne, who spent so many years among us as an active member and as the Faith Development and Social Justice Director, has chosen to return to Granite Peak to be ordained by her long time community. .... Come and rejoice with Hanne, Rev. Karla, Rev. Jackie Ziegler, and many wise colleagues that have mentored Hanne during her path to ministry. We will be singing and rejoicing and welcoming her into a life changing ministry."
