Unitarian Universalists honor and celebrate a wide range of holidays and occasions over the course of a year. Unlike other faith traditions that use a single lectionary (a collection of scripture readings appointed for a given day or occasion), the topics and themes for worship services at First Parish are chosen independently by Rev. Sarah and other worship leaders. Our worship services include uniquely Unitarian Universalist traditions, like the annual Flower Ceremony, as well as holidays from other faith traditions, such as Christmas or Beltane.
Here are some worship services that First Parish has incorporated throughout the church year:
Water Ingathering - a Unitarian Universalist tradition of incorporating the intermingling of water as a ritual for ingathering on our Homecoming Sunday in September.
High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
the Winter Solstice
Advent & Christmas
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
the Spring Equinox
Holy Week & Easter
Flower Ceremony - a Unitarian tradition started in Prague to honor our free church tradition and our choice to come together in community.
