Child Dedications

Unitarians believe that every child brings new life and hope into the world. We have a special rite of passage, called simply the Ceremony of Dedication, to welcome the child into our community and to celebrate the blessing of this gift of life. We affirm our commitment to nurture the child and hold the child in the fabric of our community. For some of us, these brief dedication ceremonies are among the most powerful and moving memories of our interconnection with the web of life in our own congregation. 
Families who would like to participate in a Dedication Ceremony are asked to contact our Minister or the Director of Religious Education.
Children welcomed in a Ceremony of Dedication can be of any age.
