UUCWC welcomes minister Yadenee Hailu


The Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing (UUCWC) will welcome the Rev. Yadenee Hailu to its online pulpit from May 2 to July 18, while the Rev. Kimberly Wildszewski, parish minister, is on parental leave.

Hailu is the community minister of blk earth, a Black centered spiritual wellness project in Tulsa, Okla. She has served Hope Unitarian Church and All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, and was ordained by the three Unitarian Universalist churches of Tulsa, including Church of the Restoration, in 2019.

Her ministry is to be an oracle for ease, liberation, and healing; the pathways to wholeness – to life. Hailu identifies as bi-cultural, Ethiopian-American, cis, Black and a woman. These identities, as well as the privileges with which she moves through the world, shape her perspective and insight on a theology rooted in healing and wholeness. To learn more about her, visit

UUCWC, 268 Washington Crossing-Pennington Road, Titusville, N.J., serves communities in Mercer, Bucks and Hunterdon counties. A Sunday online service is held weekly at 10 a.m. For information, call 609-737-0515 or visit
