May Worship Services

May 5        Partnering for Justice          Rev. Dr. Craig Rubano and Rev. Tom Rosiello

Special note: This service will begin at 11:30 am!

As Unitarian Universalists, we partner with one another and with organizations doing important justice work in local and global communities. Following up on Rev. Craig’s visits to Mexico this past fiscal year and anticipating future cooperation, this morning is a unique opportunity to partner in worship with our sibling UU congregation in San Miguel de Allende. Our May share-the-plate organization is Libros para todos (Books for All), an organization we partnered with last year that promotes literacy and books in Guanajuato province. !A todos la bienvenida!

Music: Dr. Louise Chernosky, Malcolm Halliday, Rev. Craig

May 12  A Multigenerational Celebration of Caregivers’ Day   Rev. Dr. Craig Rubano and Sari Alburtus

On this Mother’s Day, we will broaden the scope of things a bit and draw upon the stories of those caregivers in our lives. Who are the caregivers who have been most special to you? We will hear from you!

Music: Tom McCormack

May 19      What Time Is It?                    Rev. Julie Newhall

While sentient species are aware of the seasons, we humans are the species that obsesses about the specific dimensions of time itself. Have you ever lived through an entire day without knowing the time?

Music by Helen Kho, PJ Casbar

She has served as a settled minister, a consulting minister, a hospital chaplain, a teacher at Brookdale Community College, and as a guest speaker at  fellowships and congregations in Florida, New Jersey, New York, New Zealand, and North Carolina.
