October 11, 2020 – 10:30 a.m. – “Welcome to My Home” – Rev. Danielle Di Bona

Indigenous Peoples Day is upon us. This has very different meanings for those of us who identify as Indigenous, so please join me as I welcome you into my home.

The Reverend Danielle Di Bona has served Unitarian Universalism for 30 years, and is the 2018 recipient of the Award for Distinguished Service to the Cause of Unitarian Universalism. She is the 2004 recipient of The Melvin Hoover “Beloved Community Award” for outstanding service to Communities of Color in Unitarian Universalism. In her retirement, Rev. Di Bona serves as the Palliative Care chaplain at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, MA

Danielle identifies as bi-racial. Her father was born in Italy and came to the United States when he was 7. Her mother was Wampanoag, a tribe that has lived on the south shore of Massachusetts for thousands of years.
