Licensed Unity Teachers. Unity of New York is fortunate to have two dedicated Licensed Unity Teachers – Kathy Grant and Rev Louis Olivieri (Interfaith). These individuals devote much of their time and talents to study the Unity teachings in depth and to share their spiritual insights with our congregation by being involved in several aspects of Unity of New York.

Louis Olivieri, L.U.T.

Rev Louis Olivieri (Interfaith) was born and raised in New York City and boasts about being a true New Yorker. He is a graduate of New York University School of Business Administration. After spending more than 20 years as a US Treasury bond broker on Wall Street, and owning his own premium concert/theater ticket service, Lou chose to leave the corporate environment to pursue his spiritual journey. First introduced to UNITY in 2002 by a friend, Lou became a member of Unity of New York in 2006. He quickly became involved in the ministry. He is a Sunday volunteer, leader of the Quest and is a former member of the Board of Trustees. In 2011, Louis became a Licensed Unity Teacher and was also ordained as an interfaith minister through One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York. In 2015, he created UNITY CARE, the pastoral care program at Unity of New York.  Lou is also an award-winning wedding celebrant and officiant registered through the city and state of New York, he takes great pride in representing Spirit, and building community around wedding ceremonies, baby blessings, and celebrations of life as expressions of joy!
