Child Dedication Ceremonies occur twice a year during Sunday worship at First Parish. The next scheduled child dedication is Sunday, October 19. During a child dedication ceremony, children are welcomed into our community and blessed by our minister with water brought to us at Ingathering Sunday by our congregation.
If you and your family are interested in having your child or children participate in a child dedication ceremony, please contact the church office. In preparation for this service you are asked to meet with our minister, Reverend Marta Flanagan. Please contact the church office at churchoffice @ or 781-648-3799 x 201 with any questions you may have, and to set up an appointment with our minister.
