Leaf Seligman is a writer, teacher, retreat leader and planetary citizen—happy to be back at First Parish this Sunday.

Meetinghouse Campaign

Building Design Stage

Construction for the Meetinghouse improvements is planned to begin in June 2014 and the project will likely be completed in only six months — sooner than expected. This will result in a shortfall between pledge receipts and payments, which are spread over several years. The shortfall will require a loan, and to minimize interest and associated costs we are hoping you will consider accelerating the payment of your pledge. For those who have not started making your pledge payments, please do so as soon as you are able. For the many who have already sent in your pledges, thank you! Email capitalcampaign @ if you have questions.

An Easter Message from Zoltán Gál, Minister of our Partner Church in Transylvania

Read to the congregation on Sunday, April 20

Dear friends!

On every Easter Unitarians in Transylvania celebrate not the resurrection of Jesus, but the eternal life that is beyond death. For us, the teachings of Jesus are a role model that everyone should follow in order to become a better person. We believe that the Kingdom of God starts in our personal lives, and through our deeds and actions. Please follow this link to read the rest of Zoli's Easter Message.
