Rev. Louis A. Olivieri, OUnI, LUT
“It is not I, but Spirit within that does work.”
The power of our words and the intention behind them is what enhances the nature of the life that we create, to honor our love and our life. As a wedding celebrant and officiant registered through the city and state of New York, I take great pride in representing Spirit, and building community around wedding ceremonies, baby blessings, and celebrations of life as expressions of joy!
I am an ordained Interfaith/Interspiritual Minister and I studied at the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary. Through years of study, and the reading of “The Mystic Heart” by Bro Wayne Teasdale whose book inspired the Order of Universal Interfaith , I am familiar with spiritual practices from different traditions and honor and respect these paths. Knowing the details behind the sacred customs we share has provided me with a deep appreciation for the cultural differences that make each of us unique and special, yet still one. I am also a teacher of Unity Philosophy and I am a licensed practitioner of these principles.
After spending more than 20 years as a US Treasury bond broker on Wall Street, and owning my own premium concert/theater ticket service, I chose to act on my calling after personally experiencing the events of 9/11. I worked in the towers of the World Financial Center and live nearby. This occurrence fueled my decision to pursue my spiritual journey. A culmination of my experiences, both personal and public, showed me that there was a difference between “going through something and growing through something.” Understanding commitment and living and growing through your experiences make you who you are.
I am honored to work with couples from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and orientations and it would be my pleasure to work with you. Please give me a call 917.656.0929 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the details of your celebration.
