Mary E. McNamara Memorial Service

Fri, 8 Nov, 2013 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Mary McNamara

On November 8, 2013, gather together at Union Theological Seminary for a small memorial service to honor the exceptional life of the Reverend Mary E. McNamara. 

Mary grew up in Cambridge, Minnesota, was a graduate of Carleton College and Harvard Divinity School, and was ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA). She served as Interim President at Union Theological Seminary in the late 1990s and Executive Vice President for over a decade, until 2009, when she left Union to become the President of United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. They were very lucky to have Mary in that leadership role, as was everyone at Union who benefited from her wise, sturdy, and loving leadership through both hard and wonderful times.

Additionally, Mary served as President of the Interchurch Center, and Director of the Not-for-Profit Sector under Mayors Ed Koch and David Dinkins. In many ways, she was a trailblazing woman.

 This service will be held at 1:00 p.m. in James Memorial Chapel. Friends who knew Mary will offer reflection on her life's work, and the service will include a Scripture lesson and celebratory music. 

 The Service will be followed by a light lunch in the Refectory. 

To help us as we plan for this event, we encourage you to RSVP to Kevin McGee, Director of Special Events and the Annual Fund at kmcgee@uts.columbia.edu
