Spirit, Transformation, Adventure, Reflection

Welcome! Since 2009, STAR has been bringing new religious education programs to First Parish Arlington. STAR programs help adults learn more about Unitarian Universalism, deepen our spiritual exploration, and discover new ways to come together in community. STAR also offers interested First Parishioners an opportunity to teach, explore and share their passions with one another. 

Please consider joining us as a facilitator, a participant, or both! If you would like to propose doing a STAR program, please email star @

Read the Weekly e-Bulletin for more details on these programs and for more information on late-developing (but equally inspiring) new offerings.
