Worship Service: “Chalica Pageant” by Carly Poloskey, DRE and Religious Exploration Program (in person and on YouTube)
The UUA describes this uniquely UU holiday as a “week-long celebration of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. The holiday first emerged in 2005 out of a wish to have a holiday organized around Unitarian Universalist values.”
Beginning the first Sunday in December, a chalice is lit each night for 8 nights and the day is spent reflecting on the meaning of that day’s principle and doing a good deed that honors that principle.
This Sunday morning, we gather to commemorate this winter holiday. Our youth participants in Religious Exploration classes will connect their experiences this semester to our foundational UU values through spoken word and song with the help of our adult choir. During service, our youngest thinkers will guide the congregation in a meditative CHALICA walk through our education building. We hope you will join us in a fun-filled start to this reflective season.
Sunday Services are held in-person in our Sanctuary and Livestreamed on YouTube
