The Home of Reverend Laura Biddle
Hi and welcome to my Web Site. You have found your way to this place because you are either searching for someone to officiate at your wedding, to coach you on a spiritual journey, or to help you heal through a loss. I would be delighted to be your partner for any or all of these endeavors.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I love to ride my motorcycle, dance, and create pottery. I am a mother of three children, all of whom live locally. I play the acoustic and bass guitar, and my son and I perform together.
As an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, I have been practicing ministry for thirty years. I graduated from Episcopal Divinity School in 1986. My first Call to Ministry was serving women in prison as an advocate for their spiritual health and well being. During this time, I worked closely on issues regarding domestic violence, addiction, loss, and community awareness.
In 1998, I was called to parish ministry. As a parish minister, in addition to leading weekly worship services, I officiated at weddings both in churches and in public settings. Each wedding has been unique.
In 2004, I was one of the first ministers to legally officiate at a same-sex wedding, in a boat on the Merrimac River. Since then, I have been the minister for many same-sex weddings. I am currently serving as the Chaplain at Salem State University and as a grief counselor with the Newburyport Counseling Group.
