Our Minister – Bob McKetchnie

Hello and welcome to the First Parish Unitarian Universalist website. I am the Reverend Robert W. McKetchnie. My mom called me “Bob” and I invite you to do the same! I began serving First Parish in Cohasset on August 1, 2016. I am in my sixteenth year of parish ministry serving churches in MA and RI, both as a Settled Minister (Medfield, 10 years) and as an Interim Minister in E. Greenwich, RI, Attleboro, MA and Fairhaven, MA.

I was born in the Bronx, NY and moved to Jamaica Plain in Boston when I was 10 months old. I received a Bachelor of Science and Art in Business Management at Northeastern University and a Masters of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School in 2000.

I can be found in my office most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Depending on evening meetings and other appointments my exact hours move around a little. It’s important to me that I don’t miss you if you come by, or give you less time than you need, so when possible please make an appointment directly with me by emailing me at: uuketch@gmail.com

First Parish is a church that welcomes all who come! I hope you visit a 10:00 a.m. service on Sunday morning between September 11, 2016 and June 18, 2017.
