After being raised in the Catholic faith, Patti did not regularly attend church from the time she was 17 until she discovered Unity teachings when she was in her early 30's. She was an evening student at Prince George’s Community College, taking a Small Business Management class, and knew that Professor Mosby was talking about more than business in his classes. After some investigation, she learned that Professor Mosby was also the part-time Business Manager (and a teacher) at Unity of Washington, D.C. She began attending classes and doing volunteer work there in early 1987. In July of 1987 she was offered a part-time bookkeeper position there and that began her career in Unity.
She co-founded Unity Center of Light with Milledge “Butch” Mosby and his wife, Pamela in 1991. She worked at both churches until mid 1995, when she became the full-time Center Administrator at Unity Center of Light. She also serves as the Youth Ministry Director, which she says is her volunteer job at UCL.
Patti is a Licensed Unity Teacher in two focus areas - Adult Education and Youth Education Director. Over the years she has received numerous certifications in many Business and Youth Ministry aspects of “church work.” She enjoys the diversity of her work here at Unity Center of Light and loves the people. She is an ongoing student in many aspects of “running” a church and of “Truth” teachings.
Outside her work, Patti loves gardening, cooking, sewing, and simply enjoying life.
April has been involved in Unity for more than 15 years and became a Licensed Unity Teacher in Adult Education in 2004. Her work background before coming to Unity included the federal government in personnel management, customer service management and legal work.
April was attracted to the healing arts in her late 20's as the result of a personal healing crisis and has since become a certified massage therapist, Reiki master and an aromatherapy educator. The journey from physical healing to emotional and spiritual healing seemed like a natural progression and Unity philosophy resonated deeply with April.
April organizes many of our 'special' services and special events such as the Interfaith Service, World Day of Prayer, Thanksgiving Eve Service, jazz nights and Ash Wednesday retreats. She loves to teach adults and has facilitated many classes including The Twelve Powers, Discover the Power Within You, Spirits in Rebellion and more.
April is an avid gardener who feels the presence of God working in her most mightily when she is working "God's little 1/2 acre" she calls her home.
