Rev. Dr. Maripat Quinn, Senior Minister,
About Rev. Dr. Maripat_Quinn
Right after NY State passed the Equal Marriage Act, the timing was finally right to conduct the long desired kind of wedding services we wanted to perform, without any discrimination for creed, sex, race, lifestyle, ethnicity or anything. With hundreds of individualized wedding services previously written for others and already ordained as a Minister, it was time to get start puttings our beliefs into practice.
With a Ph.D. in Cross-cultural Communications, Masters degrees in both Comparative Religions and Education, awards for speaking and special events, intensive mentoring relationships with assorted rabbis, priests, imans, minsters, spiritualists, and free-thinkers, Rev. Dr. Quinn doesn't only talk the talk, but walks the walk. Unabashedly curious, she has traveled widely, living and working in many different countries. With over twenty years of working with international students and employees of multinational corporations, she has both eloquence and grace, along with an incredable amount of multicultural information and religious understanding. She believes that if you're old enough to get married, you're old enough to believe as you please.
Dr. Quinn was honored to be named a Diversity Fellow by Stony Brook University. She is a sought after speaker on topics ranging from cross-cultural communication and finding points of commonality in different religions, to international protocol and business etiquette. With a journalistic zeal, Dr. Quinn has the gift for interviewing people and discovering what makes them unique. She expresses herself clearly, in a very kind and soft-spoken manner. She created Everyone's Minister along with several like-minded souls, to cater to those seeking to individualize their wedding day and to celebrate the joining of two unique souls into a one legally married couple. Everyone's Minister also performs very loving baby namings /dedications /inclusion/welcoming ceremonies.
A wonderful speaker and favorite guest lecturer on subjects as diverse as cross-cultural communications and international protocol, to etiquette, international orientations and religious liberalism. She is happily married with 4 adult children. All this along, with a huge heart, combined with over 25 years as an award-winning International Public Relations professional, makes her uniquely qualified to be Everyone's Minister. Dr. Quinn prides herself on customizing services that blend cultural backgrounds, spiritual beliefs or non-beliefs, family practices and desires into a tasteful, well rehearsed marriage ceremony or life cycle event.
While conducting many wedding sevices herself, Dr. Quinn has also recruited and trained a cadre of like-minded Ministers to help carry out the duties of
Everyone's Minister. She personally matches the talents, preferences and expertise of the Ministers to your needs.
Perhaps you and your beloved are from different religions, races,
cultural backgrounds, different sides of the track or as similar as two peas in a pod but just don't feel comfortable in a traditional house of worship, you've come to the right place!
Whether you desire a semi-religious service, a highly creative service, a quick, civil service, something more spiritual or anything in-between.
Everyone's Minister will excede your highest expectations!
Committed to helping
achieve the celebration
of their dreams.
Couples Rave About Everyone's Minister!
"Reverend Dr. Maripat Quinn was our officiant at our wedding this past September and she really went above and beyond to help us with the ceremony. We were both clueless, all we knew is that we wanted a small and intimate ceremony in our backyard with only a handful of people. Maripat provided inspiration and helped us to figure out the details of the ceremony, and we were grateful for the guidance, examples of vows and special ceremonies which we could chose to add or leave out, use our own - really whatever we wanted. In the end we were able to put together a personal and very special ceremony with a combination of our own material and Maripat's special ceremony additions. Maripat is professional, experienced and she provides a personalized service with a calm and kind demeanor which really helped to make our wedding day special. The ceremony was perfect and we will have these memories forever in our hearts. We wholeheartedly recommend Maripat." Anne & Phillip (5/5 stars) WeddingWire
