December Letter from the Board

December Greetings!

Darkness falls early, temperatures are dropping, and the potential for snow is all the buzz on the news tonight. It is December in New England!

It has been a tumultuous world we’ve navigated these past several months, on a global scale... Click here to read the full letter

Two things we are very grateful for:


Thank you to all the families who participated in our babysitting fund raiser for Youth Group! The kids had a great time, and we really appreciate everyone's generosity. Youth Group is ready to get moving on some activities and projects, so your donations will help greatly. Thank you!

Fundraiser for Westborough Food Pantry

The special coffee hour fundraiser last Sunday raised approximately $600 for the Westborough Food Pantry! Thank you to everyone who participated, helped, made goodies, and donated - this was a huge success!

Community News

Justice Church

Many of us may feel we are in the thick of despair. If not, in the thick of it, we may feel close to it. It is a hard time. Let us explore together what it takes to move from despair, and also act upon our love in a way that enables us to move, to organize, to craft the change we need.

Dec. 19th 6:30-7:30, RSVP here

Justice Church is a monthly virtual service for UUs who care about justice from across our network to come together in community to reground spiritually, connect, and build power together. We will include a break-out group coffee hour, announcements, community offerings, and trainings. We hope that this will be a space to find spiritual grounding, collaborate and meet other UU Mass Action members, and be together in a space of ritual and song!
