Also in the links icon you will find that we have a Facebook page that you can like and observe as well.

She hopes that you welcome her with open arms and knowing that she will do her best to meet your needs. She hopes that she will represent the United Parish in a positive way and asks that you come join us in service every Sunday at 10am. 

Please feel free to email her or call the office here at the United Parish with any needs, questions or concerns you have!




Music Ministries Director

Marcia Desilets

Marcia Kidder Desilets is a resident of Sterling, MA. She currently teaches violin, viola, and piano to students in the surrounding communities. Marcia recieved her Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from New England Conservatory in 1981. She has studied violin with Robert Koff and Virginia Neikrug, as well as becoming certified in several levels of the Suzuki pedagogy. She has played in a number of area orchestral groups such as the Thayer Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Pro Musica, and the Lancaster Chamber Ensemble. Marcia has also been an organist and choir director in several area churches. She has three adult children, Danielle, Brent and Alex, who all play various instruments and sing.

I believe that music is an essential element of worship. It is not just a profession for me, but a way of life. From my studies at New England Conservatory to my many years playing in orchestras and ensembles, to teaching music to many students and sharing my music skills in churches, I have had the good fortune of being blessed but also blessing many others. I have especially enjoyed encouraging young people to discover their innate musical talents and share them with their church family. Even my studio students are encouraged to share the music that they learn in lesson with their individual churches.

My joy is being able to bring a spiritual quality to the service that would not be there otherwise. My belief in God and my love of music inspire me as I serve, and it is an honor to be apart of the United Parish Church and welcome you to join us for Sunday services at 10am and lets worship the Lord together in singing!
