Peter Arian


Peter first walked through the doors of Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair the first Sunday after 9/11. It felt like home then and it still does. Peter has served on the Board of Trustees for the past three years where he has been active on the Safety and Emergency Planning and Transparency task forces. prior to this he was a member of the Settled Minister Search Committee. He was selected as a Pillar of the Congregation in 2015 because of his commitment to UUCM in several different areas. He has been teaching in the Religious Education program for 15 years at every age level from K-1 through Senior Youth. He is a trained Our Whole Lives (OWL) facilitator and has taught K-1 and 4th-5th OWL. He was on the RE Committee for 10 years serving as Chair for three of those years. For the past 9 years he has been involved in UUCM Mesh Café and for several years has held a leadership role in that ministry. He is also a graduate of Harvest the Power. Peter has two daughters, Emma, 22, and Maggie, 18. He is a graduate of Georgetown University where he was a team manager for the Men’s Basketball team led by Patrick Ewing.
