Tom Coronite, Pastor
Rev. Tom Coronite is the twenty-ninth Settled Pastor of The First Church in Weymouth. More commonly known simply as "TC", he was ordained in 1987 in the Roman Catholic tradition, but has found his true home in the Congregational Way.
Pastor TC has served in various positions in other Congregational Churches, and was active locally as a pulpit supply minister for several years while continuing to work in his full-time job as an air traffic controller. The final 20 years of his ATC career were in the control tower at Boston's Logan Airport. While working ATC, he continued to serve churches in all aspects of Congregational Church life, and was especially active in Christian Education programs. After several months of attending church at The First Church in Weymouth, TC was called to serve as Associate Pastor in October of 2013. He was called to the office of Pastor in November of 2015.
Weymouth residents since 1994, TC and his wife, Trish, were married in 1990 and moved to Weymouth shortly after their son, Matt, was born. Their Yorkie, Henry (a prolific source of sermon anecdotes), rounds out the family.
Pastor TC is an active Congregational minister in the Massachusetts Association of Congregational Christian Churches and its clergy group, the Mayflower Ministers. He also serves as Chaplain of the Weymouth Fire Department.
