Our Church Staff

Therese Kay, Church Administrator

We welcome our new Church Administrator, Therese Kay! For now, Therese will be in the office Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We are so happy to have her with us!



Tara Tresner-Kirsch, Music Director

Tara is multi-instrumentalist (piano, cello, and organ) who also loves to sing and direct choral music. She comes to us after completing an interim position at First Church Somerville (UCC) as handbell director and accompanist, and has also been a substitute musician and director at many churches in the greater Boston area. In addition to making music in churches, Tara is an accompanist and assistant beginning-string teacher in the Needham Public Schools and music teacher in the Watertown Public School Extended Day programs. She also teaches piano and cello to individuals and spends a lot of time gardening. Tara is usually at MUUC on Tuesdays during the church year. Tara enjoys working with the musicians, congregation, and staff of Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church.

(Our Guest Music Director, through November, is Vivian Montgomery).

Katie Camire, Director of Religious Education

Katie Camire comes to us with over fifteen years of experience working with children and youth in various settings. She is currently working with (and will continue to work with) the First Parish in Lexington (UU) as the Youth Program Coordinator. Katie has office hours at MUUC most Tuesday afternoons during the church year, and at other times by appointment. She is excited to learn and grow with the congregation!


Thomas O’Donnell, Church Sexton

If you spend any time at all at MUUC, you’re bound to see Tom, who sees to it that the church is spic-and-span, running like clockwork, and open for business!
