Rev. Bridget McCann,  Senior Minister/Spiritual Director

Rev. Bridget holds a MA in Consciousness Studies from the Holmes Institute and is a licensed minister with Centers for Spiritual Living. She joined Portland Center for Spiritual Living as its Spiritual Director in June 2024.

Rev. Bridget speaks and teaches from her lived experience, having taken spiritual principles into her everyday life, and thereby discovering that much clarity, joy, love, acceptance, and wisdom were available to her. Her messages are filled with examples of spiritual living from a wide variety of diverse voices, knowing that the Divine speaks to and through all Peoples of the world, and throughout all times. She is committed to revealing the Golden Thread of Truth that winds through all spiritual traditions.

She believes deeply in the power of spiritual community, in its ability to help people heal, remember the truth of their being, to know that they matter (no matter what), to create the lives they dream of, and to make our world a better place – A World That Works For Everyone. Rev. Bridget believes that her work as Spiritual Director is to lift-up others, to provide the resources they need to discover and shine their unique lights.

Rev. Bridget first discovered Science of Mind and Spirit (the spiritual philosophy we teach) in 2008 at Mile Hi Church in Lakewood, Colorado. She is fond of saying that she kept going back because “they didn’t ask me to check my brain at the door, and their concept of God did not offend my scientific knowledge.” She remembers crying just about every Sunday that first year or so, tears of healing, forgiveness, and release of old limiting beliefs.

Rev. B. was an attorney before becoming a minister. She worked mostly on behalf of immigrant and refugee children, serving them as they moved through the process of gaining legal status and the right to stay, and thrive, in their new home. She speaks a great deal of Spanish, is an avid cyclist, and loves hiking and travel.

Rev. Marilyn Sprague, Staff Minister

Rev. Marilyn Sprague, M. Ed, MA is a Religious Science Minister and a 2020 graduate of Holmes Institute’s Masters of Consciousness Studies. As a master Truth teacher, Rev. Marilyn inspires brilliant breakthroughs for living spiritually-based lives in a material world.

Rev. Marilyn’s first, conscious memory of Science of Mind was receiving a copy of Science of Mind Magazine in 2007. “It was like finding a beacon of light at a time when I felt I was living in a 40-watt world.” In 2010, she moved to the Pacific Northwest and discovered her new spiritual home, Portland Center for Spiritual Living. Her zest for life-long learning, inspired her to enroll in classes based in spiritual principles. She says one class led to another class, and this process continued until she became a Licensed Practitioner in 2014, which led to entering ministerial school in 2016, and becoming a licensed minister in 2020.

Rev. Marilyn is a trailblazer and has a rich history of conceptualizing, designing, and delivering customized adult-learning-friendly workshops which spark potential and blossom creativity. With a Bachelors Degree in Speech/Communication, and a Masters Degree in Adult Learning from the University of Minnesota, she co-founded an award-winning, nationally renowned organizational development consulting firm. She served as a principal in the firm for more than two decades.

Today, Rev. Marilyn is passionate about the transformative power of Science of Mind teachings. As PCSL’s Director of Education and Virtual Outreach, Rev. Marilyn is applying her creative genius to new service delivery models which provide additional services to PCSL’s vast on-line community. She says:

“I believe the Science of Mind philosophy, religion, and way of life is a treasure chest of spiritual principles and practices which carry the potential of creating a world that works for everyone. I want to be a part of shining this Light into the world.”

Rev. Marilyn also loves ceremonies and rituals. She is available to officiate at weddings, memorial services, house blessings, baby blessings, and the vast array of ceremonies to celebrate life’s blessings.
