Unitarian Universalist and other ministers from around the midwest participated in an installation ceremony for Rev. Jay Wolin at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities March 18.

A charge from the community was given by Rabbi Henry Karp of Temple Emmanuel and Rev. Katherine Mulhern of Edwards Congregational United Church of Christ, both of Davenport.  The three congregations were neighbors at one time, and since then have offered joint programs together every year for the Quad Cities community.

A charge to the congregation was given by Rev. Eva Cameron of the UU Society of Black Hawk County, Cedar Falls, and a charge to the minister was made by Rev. Tom Capo of People’s Church Unitarian Universalist, Cedar Rapids.  Also participating in the service was Nancy Heege, District Executive of the Prairie Star District of the Unitarian Universalist Association, headquartered in Minneapolis.
