Brown Bag Lunches

The Caring Team, on the third Sunday of each month, organizes an assembly line to make bag lunches for The Upper Room, a daytime homeless shelter in Erie. Each month, shortly after the conclusion of our service, we make and deliver 150 lunches to the Upper Room’s daytime homeless shelter.



Memory Cafe

A memory café is a gathering place for people with dementia and their care partners to relax and enjoy conversation, refreshments, and entertainment. A memory cafe has no other purpose than its guests enjoying each other’s company.
We do enjoy each other’s company on the first and third Thursday of each month, from 1:00 – 3:00 (with one summer holiday-in July this year.)


Highway Pickup

For more than a decade the members at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Erie have been cleaning  2 1/2 miles of roadway along Perry Highway from the Erie Zoo south to our facility.  A few years ago we added to our area and now work along Perry Highway south past our congregation toward the expressway.


Martin Luther King Jr March

Every winter we gather to participate and show our support for the ideas of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr during Erie’s annual MLK Jr. March.


Our Neighbor’s Place

Our Neighbor’s Place is an overflow shelter for those without a place to stay during the winter months. Unitarian Universalist members donate money, purchase food, prepare, cook, and serve complete hot meals regularly through the season.


Climate March

We are proud to have been a co-sponsor of Erie’s Climate March and Rally.  With 30 UUCE members swelling ranks of the 500 participating marchers we showed our strong support for issues relating to clean air, clean water, and our planet’s health.
