Serving the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos 24 hours a day

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The Rev. John Cullinan jokes with his congregation at the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos that his job is something that he wanted to do since he was 5 years old.

The truth is, Cullinan grew up Catholic and after college he attended a Unitarian Church in Milwaukee. It was there that he found his life-long career.

Although in some respects the job seems to last 24 hours, Cullinan still looks forward to Sunday mornings at church.

“I enjoy leading worship on Sunday,” he said, “that’s the highlight of my week.”

Cullinan began working at the local Unitarian church in August 2007; he replaced Rev. Dale Arnink, who served as a part-time transition minister from 2006-2007.

Previously, Cullinan said he worked as a lay-leader in Milwaukee. He attended the seminary at the Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago.

Cullinan explained that while the church was responsible for filling the position, the Unitarian Universalist Association Transition Office helped to match him with the Los Alamos church. He traveled to the church in February 2007 for an interview and to conduct an actual service in Santa Fe.  

In April, Cullinan said he returned to the church to spend time with the congregation before they voted on whether to hire him.
