The Daily Astorian took the opportunity to recognize a phenomenal member of their community yesterday. Kevin Violette, who has built his life as jack of all trades, currently works as a substitute high school teacher in Astoria. Violette’s travels have lead him all over the world – traveling to Germany to study language and returning to the US to teach English as a Second Language programs.

An ordained minister in the Universal Life Church, Violette performs marriage ceremonies for friends and acquaintances. He’s performed about 20 ceremonies now.

“It’s always a good time,” he said. “Sometimes I play music after.”


His quest for adventure and diversity led Violette to the interfaith Universal Life Church. We hope to see you join our congregation – who knows where your ministry could take you!
