All Souls Day

DotD AltarAll Souls Day is a day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away. It is a Roman Catholic day of commemoration and has prior origins in the ancient Pagan Festival of the Dead—which celebrated the Pagan belief that the souls of the dead would return for a meal with the family. Some themes: remembrance, grief, cycle of life and death, honoring those who have gone before us.

Here at USSB we celebrate All Souls Day with a multigenerational party in Parish Garden during community hour.

Hunt for Justice

butterfly artAs an alternative to the usual mad dash for plastic eggs filled with candy and prizes, our kids celebrate Easter with a Hunt for Justice.

On Easter Sunday our 6th-7th Grade and Coming of Age classes will hide eggs, different colors representing various dollar amounts. The kids will collect these eggs with their usual energy and gusto. After all the eggs have been found, the kids will practice our 5th UU Principle by voting with their eggs how much money will be donated to their three causes. It’s a hunt for justice!
