AUBURN — The First Universalist Church of Auburn has awarded its 2015 Rose Window honors to three members whose efforts have made a significant impact on the health and vibrancy of the church. This annual award cites members who have been outstanding models of Unitarian Universalist principles and recognizes their exceptional contributions to their faith community.

Bob and Mary Wolf, formerly of Winthrop, have been selected as the recipients of the award.

The church says Bob and Mary Wolf have enriched the Auburn UU congregation over 13 years as members with their generosity of heart, mind and spirit. After Bob’s retirement from four decades in ministry in Massachusetts, their participation in Auburn ranged from small group ministry to fundraisers and running the book sale at the church fair for many years.

Bob frequently graced the pulpit as a worship leader and provided pastoral care in Rev. Jodi’s absence. He supported Rev. Jodi with the wisdom of his 60 years as a Unitarian-Universalist.

The church says Mary’s open-hearted, forthright and loyal nature has left its own deep imprint on the congregation. She modeled generosity by her reliable volunteerism.

Though Bob and Mary recently moved to Massachusetts to be closer to family, the church says they will always be part of the Auburn UU congregation.
