Holidays and Traditions
As Unitarian Universalists, our congregation respects and celebrates holidays and traditions from a wide range of faiths. We have some holidays that are uniquely ours, such as our beautiful Flower Communion. Our Worship Associates committee works with our minister to choose topics and themes in keeping with the season, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and other familiar holidays. We often celebrate less frequently observed occasions, such as the summer and winter solstices, and Earth Day.
We have traditions that build community, such as our weekly Circle of Lights. In this ceremony, members and non-members alike are given the opportunity to come forward and light a candle from our flaming chalice while they express a joy or concern that represents a milestone in their lives.
