Celebrating LGBTQI Preaching All June: Rev. Rhina Ramos Preaching June 5

Join us for worship every Sunday in June as we celebrate LGBTQI preaching all month. We’ll feature queer preachers as we celebrate queer bodies, queer love, and queer faith.

Rev. Rhina Ramos

We welcome Rev. Rhina Ramos as our guest preacher on Pentecost Sunday, June 5. Rev. Ramos is an ordained United Church of Christ (UCC) minister leading a Spanish speaking congregation open to the LGBTQI Latinx community. Rhina is also the National Coordinator for Encuentros Latinx at the UCC national office promoting inclusion of LGBTQI in faith communities as well as Latinx in traditional white congregations. Rhina was born in El Salvador and emigrated to the United States at age 14 in 1983. She graduated from Hofstra University Law School in 1995 and was a labor attorney for five years recuperating thousands of dollars in unpaid wages for immigrant workers. In 2003, she obtained a Masters in Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA. In her free time, she loves long walks listening to sappy romantic music in Spanish.
