Prayer Chaplains

Martha Aivaz

Prayer Chaplain  805-481-1335

I was introduced to Unity in the late 1980’s.  I was hooked on the teachings of the Fillmore’s, co-founders of the Unity movement.  At Unity of Naples, FA I was a Sunday school teacher for five years.

In 1990, I moved back to San Luis Obispo county. Upon my arrival, I immediately became a member of San Luis Obispo Unity.  Served as a Sunday school teacher, graduated as a Licensed Unity teacher August 4, 1996.

In 1999, Patty Moralles, Therese Solimeno, and I co-founded Unity-Five Cities.  In approximately 2006, I retired as Spiritual Leader. Began serving as a Prayer Chaplain in 2016.


LaDawn Davis

Head Prayer Chaplain   805-757-7556

I came to Unity in 2002.  I was a Sunday School Teacher and Youth Education Director at Unity Santa Maria.  I attended Saturday morning classes to begin studying to become a Licensed Unity Teacher.

I am the Y.O.U. (Youth of Unity) Sponsor. When Camille turned 13 we sought out Unity again because she enjoys going to regional Youth of Unity events. By then we were living in Oceano, so we started attending Unity-Five Cities.  Camille is serving as a regional officer for the West Central Region Youth of Unity organization for 2017-2018 year. 

I have been attending the Way of Mastery study group and this is has really deepened my spiritual practice.

I enjoy serving as Prayer Chaplain for Unity-Five Cities.


Janice Lamont

Prayer Chaplain   301-701-1941

Janice, whose father was a student of religion, grew up experimenting with churches, Catholic, Baptist, Unitarian, Science of Mind and Buddhist. With the Long Beach Hotline (a suicide prevention telephone service) she taught Facilitative Listening to other hotline staff around the western United States. Later, she spent time living in a spiritual community called I AM. After retiring from civil service in Los Angeles, she moved to the Central Coast and found the loving community at Unity-Five Cities. Janice has two daughters, two granddaughters and enjoys singing in the choir, playing her ukulele, ballroom dancing and writing poetry which can sometimes turn into a nice little song. She has not been a board member before but is ready to put her lifetime skills to work to serve the Unity-Five Cities congregation for the next two years.
