Our Minister


The Reverend Cassandra Howe

High Street Unitarian Universalist Church welcomes its fourth settled minister, the Reverend Cassandra Howe.

Rev. Howe moved to Macon from Michigan where she served two Unitarian Universalist congregations.

Rev. Howe received her Master’s of Divinity in 2009 from Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, CA, and her Bachelor of Arts in 2003 from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. She was born and raised in Seattle, WA where her parents and sister live.

Outside of congregational ministry, Rev. Howe has served as a hospital chaplain, a young adult coordinator, and as the Vice President of the Heartland Unitarian Universalist Minister’s Association. For fun she enjoys being outdoors, swimming in cold bodies of water, eating chocolate chip cookies and spending time with her husband, Ben Gerhardt.

Rev. Howe felt the call to ministry while working as an Americorps volunteer. She saw how intentional human relationship can transform society. She understands her ministry to be one of co-creating religious communities that invite people towards a deeper awareness of the gift of life and a stronger commitment to the creation of justice and peace.

Rev. Cassandra can be reached by phone and is available for pastoral consultation throughout the week. Please call her cell at (510) 225-8921 to set up a time.
