Holidays and Traditions
Our multi-cultural, multi-faith community observes many disparate traditions and celebrations throughout the year. These include our unique UU take on the Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter seasons, along with celebrations which have significance in light of our seven principles. These can include earth day observations, explorations of the Buddhist and Hindu traditions, celebrating new babies with a naming ceremony, honoring our service members with special services, and learning about the perspective of our secular community.
As a vibrant and progressive community, we welcome the opportunity to learn about any other traditions or perspectives you might bring to us!
Ninety-five years ago, the Flower Service was created by Rev. Dr. Norbert Čapek as a way to unite his diverse congregation of former Catholics, Jews and Orthodox Protestants. We continue his legacy with traditional elements from Čapek’s original service and modern elements.
