HARRISBURG (October 29, 2019) – The Reverend Annalie Korengel, Pastor of the Unionville Presbyterian Church and police chaplain for multiple departments in southern Chester County, recently served as Pennsylvania Senate Chaplin for the day at the invitation of state Senator Andy Dinniman.
Dinniman invited Korengel to visit the state Capitol in Harrisburg and lead the Senate invocation as a representative of Unionville Presbyterian Church, a rural congregation in southern Chester County that this year celebrated its 175 anniversary.
“I want to thank Pastor Korengel for joining me on the Senate floor and offering an inspirational prayer and a message of unity to the legislature,” Dinniman said. “And I also want to recognize her for her service in supporting our police and law enforcement professionals as chaplain for the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department, the Kennett Square Police Department and the Kennett Township Police Department.”
Korengel, who holds Master’s Degrees in Business Administration, Human Resources, Social Work, and Divinity, has served as pastor of Unionville Presbyterian Church since 2012. She is also a graduate of the Police Chaplain Training Program and has done continuing education specializing in first responder trauma.
