Partner Church Committee Meeting
Date(s) - Sunday, September 15, 2019
First Unitarian Church of Providence
As part of the UU Partner Church Council, we support the partnership between First U and the Unitarian church in Szentegyhaza, Transylvania (Romania) through communications and visits with the community. The kopjfa, or memorial post, in our meditation garden and the wooden candlestick, used for our “Joys and Sorrows” ritual, are gifts made by our partner church. Through fundraising efforts our church helped fund the construction of their church bell tower and a loft apartment to house future visitors. First Unitarian congregants traveled to Transylvania in 2006, 2012, 2015, and June of 2019.
The committee welcomes all who wish to be part of this mutually enriching partnership with another congregation halfway ‘round the world.
