Unity Spiritual Centre is happy to announce that we have a new part-time minister; Rev. Patricia Zogar, who officially started as our Minister April 1, 2016.
Rev. Patricia was introduced to the New Thought philosophy in 1979, when she attended a wedding and a memorial service in rapid succession in a New Thought church. Although she was raised without a religious tradition, she had, since childhood, yearned for a spiritual aspect to life; she instantly knew that this philosophy, with its references to “The Infinite” and “Universal Mind,” was for her, and that it was her calling to become a New Thought minister. She immediately began studying through the Ernest Holmes College, with Edmonton’s Dr. Jaclyn Darby, and undertook many other self-directed studies.
In 1999, she was appointed Spiritual Leader of the Positive Living Centre of Victoria, and in 2002 she was ordained by Dr. Darby, President of International Alliance of Churches of Truth, Canada.
In 2008, she answered the call to Winnipeg and was licensed as a Religious Science (Science of Mind) practitioner and minister. She served 3 years in Winnipeg and 2 years in Kamloops before “retiring” back to Vancouver Island. Shortly thereafter, she was invited to Unity of Nanaimo as guest speaker, and over the next two years her relationship with the congregation deepened and grew; it became clear that she was “not done yet” and on April 1, 2016 she was appointed minister. She is continuing her spiritual development through studies with Unity Worldwide Ministries.
Patricia’s other passion is the arts, particularly the theatre and she brings her humour, love of music and joyful self-expression to her ministry. Join Patricia every second Sunday 10:30 a.m.
