Water Ceremony

Please join us for our Opening Sunday and our traditional “Water Ceremony” (sometimes called “Water Communion”) service. This intergenerational service will be led by Rev. Lara Hoke on Sunday, September 9 at 10:30 a.m.

A Water Communion is a gathering ceremony traditionally done at the UUCiA (and often used in Unitarian Universalist congregations across the country on “homecoming” Sundays). All are invited to bring a small quantity of water to the service, sharing why the water is special or representative of the summer.

As the UUA website puts it, “The combined water is symbolic of our shared faith coming from many different sources.” It will be wonderful to be together again, and to meet new friends.
