The winter holiday season is a time of awe, a time to ponder the mystery of creation and consider our place within it with a sense of wonder and humility.

Christmas Eve candlelight service at Unitarian Universalist Society

Christmas

We celebrate Christmas with candlelight services that touch our diverse religous perspectives and backgrounds. In keeping with our UU principles, we gather on Christmas Eve to appreciate the wonder and potential of all children, the importance of generosity and compassion to those in need, and the warmth of our shared humanity. We also typically hold a Christmas pageant during the Sunday service just before Christmas, as well as other holdiday events.

Winter solstice

We gather on the winter solstice for a ritual led by the Owl Moon Covenant of UU Pagans. With music and reflections, we celebrate the return of the sun on the year’s longest night. This is a family-friendly event and all are welcome.

This year’s celebrations

Events will be listed here as dates and times become available.
