Brooklyn Heights Church Swears in New Minister Via Cell Phone

The First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn and its new senior minister, the Rev. Dr. Patrick T. O’Neill, overcame an unexpected adversity Sunday, the date of his scheduled installation at the landmark Heights church.

Hours before the service, a broken toe had sent the Rev. Dr. O’Neill to the emergency room, and he remained hospitalized -- as the 5 p.m. installation began, via cell phone.

Installation by cell phone: Brooklyn Eagle
