September Service Schedule

Monthly Theme: Welcome

Sunday, September 2, 10:30 am: Welcoming Questions

This service offers the opportunity to explore the importance of questioning in our faith tradition. There will also be opportunities to ask questions practical and/or theological. As this is both a holiday week-end and the Pride Parade day, the service will be casual and perhaps end a little early, so we can join the Pride Parade.
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk (minister) and Mary Anna Louise Kovar (Chair of Board of Trustees)

Sunday, September 9, 10:30 am: Welcome Back

As we reconstitute our community after the summer meanderings we use water and its universal qualities as a metaphor. You are invited to bring water in recognition of your summer experiences be them in your own backyard, a favorite local spot or travels.
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk and Jeb Gaudet
Music: Music Director Jane Perry and UUphonia

Sunday, September 16, 10:30 am: Transylvanian Welcome

The roots of Unitarianism as an identified faith tradition came from 450 years ago in Transylvania. This summer our minister went on a pilgrimage to explore these roots and the how Unitarianism is lived today in its birthplace.
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk and Lynn Nugent
Music: Music Director Jane Perry

Sunday, September 23, 10:30 am: We Are All Treaty People

It is said that we are all treaty people as we engage the work of addressing the Canadian historical relations with her indigenous population. This is a core understanding as we work toward trust building and reconciliation with our Indigenous siblings.
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk and Pam Rickey
Music: Music Director Jane Perry and UUphonia

Sunday, September 30, 10:30 am: Rites of Passage – Welcome and Transition

Rites of Passage honour transitions in individual lives. Some such as infant naming/dedication, marriage and home blessings are significant in welcoming new relationships and some recognize changes in relationship (croning/saging, celebrations of life, memorials, retirements). This morning we explore the significance of rites of passage.
This morning is a collaboration with our minister, our Lay Chaplains and the Lay Chaplains Committee
Service Facilitators: Rev Debra Faulk and Lay Chaplain Team
Music: Music Director Jane Perry

Services are 60 – 75 minutes and are live streamed into Wickenden Social Hall.

What to Wear

We tend to be an informal group.  Basically, no one really concerns themselves with what others are wearing. As long as you are comfortable and respectful to self and others, it really does not make any difference how dressed “up” or dressed “down” you are.
We are striving to be a scent-free space. Please refrain from wearing perfume, after-shave or other scented products.
