The Flower Communion is an annual uniquely Unitarian Universalist ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. Originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, the Flower Ceremony was introduced to the United States by Rev. Maya Capek, Norbert’s widow. In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings a flower. The congregation and minister bless the flowers, and they’re redistributed. Please bring a flower to the service, whether you join us virtually or in person.
