May 8, 10:30am, Mother’s Day of Peace

In 1870 Julie Ward Howe, a Unitarian social activist who tirelessly advocated for women’s rights, wrote the Mother’s Day Proclamation as a call for peace. 100 years later, many members of our congregations marched and struggled and paved the way for equal rights in the women’s rights movement.
This week, we grieve reading the leaked Supreme Court opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.
We know Unitarian Universalists have been in the front lines for generations, and will continue to stand strong for women’s rights for generations to come. This Sunday, we will acknowledge our grief and our anger and our fears. We will also celebrate the foremothers in our lives who continue to inspire us through the long arc of justice.

May 8, 11:45, Welcoming Trellis Ceremony & Reception, Rev. Beth Banks

Immediately after the worship service, we’ll move under the Welcoming Trellis to honor Gale Sosnick, long-time Member of UUCD. This will be followed by a catered reception. Thank you to The Sosnick Family for this recognition of her life. All are welcome!

Welcoming was an important part of Gale Sosnick’s life, especially at UUCD. Gale died on July 14, 2019. Her adult children asked for an enduring way to honor their mother that would benefit the vision of UUCD. The result was the Welcome Trellis, which completed one of the remaining projects from the Capitol Campaign. The family is gathering to celebrate with the congregation.

You’re invited to a brief ceremony and catered reception giving thanks to Gale Sosnick, her family, and the people who brought this project to its conclusion. Gale loved UUCD, and on May 8th we recognize her joy in belonging to UUCD.
