In 1997, I was ordained in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. The seminary I attended was The New Seminary there, and because the school was highly thought of in the spiritual community of NYC, we were blessed by priests, imams, rabbis, ministers, shamans – representatives of all of the world’s religions.
I was raised Anglican in Canada, but began to be truly interfaith at the age of 13. The story of that came out in an interview on NPR, and here it is:
When I began doing weddings in 1997, many of the couples who sought me out were of different faiths – and that continues today. Christian and Jew, Hindu and Muslim, atheist and agnostic – I have worked as an interfaith wedding officiant with all of these, and many more. In every case, we have created meaningful and beautiful interfaith weddings that is reflect their unique relationships. I love this work!
