Holidays & Traditions
The holiday celebrations in Unitarian Universalist congregations reflect the six Sources of our faith.
Many Unitarian Universalists and our congregations celebrate Christian holidays like Christmas, Jewish holidays like Passover, and Pagan Winter Solstice, among others. Our holiday services use the stories and traditions creatively, calling us to our deeper humanity and our commitment to the good.
In addition to religious holidays, we also honor secular holidays including Earth Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Labor Day, Indigenous Peoples Day, and Thanksgiving.
At GMUUC, we also celebrate and provide a number of special services and ceremonies, including: Luminescence – A UU winter holiday, Flower Communion, Water Communion, Pet Blessings, InGathering, New Member ceremonies, Child Dedication ceremonies, Coming of Age ceremonies, Bridging ceremonies, Memorial Services, and Weddings.
