Our Minister

Rev. Donna Maurer

​ Our minister, Rev. Donna Maurer, is a dynamic presenter of the philosophy of the Science of Mind. She teaches the laws of Cause and Effect delivering powerful talks for our Sunday Celebrations. Her positive outlook flows freely from her faith in and practice of the Principles as taught by Dr. Ernest Holmes and other great mystics.
Dr. Hornaday was designated by Dr. Ernest Holmes to become the leader of the movement. Rev. Donna worked under Dr. Hornaday for over 10 years, taking classes, attending services, teaching Sunday School. These experiences birthed her foundation of belief and practice in the SOM principles.
Dr. Arthur Chang succeeded Dr. Hornaday, in the field and in Rev. Donna’s life opening the door to a broader understanding, from exposure to the mystic and epic mythology. This discovery generated a new energy and appreciation for the teachings.
​ Rev. Donna accepted our Letter of Call, effective March 1, 2006, moving from Vero Beach, Florida where she had served as pastor of Genesis Church of Religious Science for nine years. During her tenure in Florida, she was appointed one of eight Ecclesiastical Representatives of the United Church of Religious Science, serving as a spiritual advisor to churches, ministers and boards in a 5-state area. Previously, she served as Assistant Pastor at Founder’s Church in Los Angeles, California, as well as Assistant Dean of the Holmes College, Los Angeles Regional Campus.
She has been a member of the Church of Religious Science for over 30 years, and now lives in Green Valley with her husband, John, and their cat, Shakti.

Rev. Donna’s office hours for the Sonoran Desert Center for Spiritual Living are Tuesday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Sonoran Center in Amado, located 10 miles South from Green Valley, off of Interstate 19.
