Cassandra Mannhardt
Board of Trustees President

Unity of Fredericksburg has been my spiritual home for over a dozen years. I love learning and applying transformative spiritual principles. I have been blessed by the opportunity to lead our Montessori-based children’s services where I witnessed and nurtured the spiritual development of our children. I eagerly look forward to being able to resume these special times together soon. I also have a passion for nurturing connectedness and community on all levels, like encouraging fellowship over luscious organic salads with herbs from my own garden. I joyfully invite you to join us for Sunday celebration and/or a class.

Natalie Breen
Board of Trustees Treasurer
Natalie has been attending various Unity churches since 1990 and has been a part of Unity of Fredericksburg since its inception. You often can find her attending Sunday services with some or all of her children in tow, as well as performing as the special musician.

When Natalie is putting together the music for services, she always chooses carefully, ensuring that the music matches the theme of the talk. For her, having the music match the talk adds a much- needed element to the spirituality of the service.

She looks forward to growing with the board and encourages you to reach out to her!
