Town to Rename Part of Street in Honor of Pastor

Update: The Town of Huntington will dedicate a street in Huntington Station in honor of the late Rev. Mother Agnes Hiller on Monday.

Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, the Huntington Town Board and other town officials will be joined by Rev. Bernadette Watkins, pastors and members of Mt. Calvary Holy Church of Huntington and family for the ceremony at East 10th Street and New York Avenue at noon.

Mother Hiller, as she was known, dedicated her life to the Huntington Station community by taking in dozens of children and organizing programs to address issues of hunger, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, and families in need.

She was born in 1903. As a young woman in 1932, she became one of the first members of the newly formed Mt. Calvary Holy Church of Huntington. She later became assistant pastor and then was named pastor of Mt. Calvary Holy Church soon after the church relocated to its present location at East 10th Street. She served as pastor until she retired in 1994 at the age of 90. She died in 2006.

Because of limitations on gatherings, attendance has been limited to family and friends of Rev. Hiller and the Church who requested the street renaming and have pre-RSVPed.
