Rev. Walter Pitman


As most of you know, Rev. Walter Pitman will be retiring at the end of this summer. As Senior Pastor of the United Church of Christ, Southbury, for 25 years, Walter (“Scooter”) has been a friend, a counselor, a teacher, and a leader for our congregation and our community. Walter is also a friendly face and a mentor to MANY people in and around Southbury.

We will have a celebration on Sunday, June 16, 2019 on the Green next to United Church of Christ from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. It will be an open house, and a chance to bid farewell to Walter, Stephanie, Alex and Ricky Pitman, and to congratulate Walter on his retirement.
