This Sunday is the special plate collection. The recipient for April will be the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry.
On Sunday, April 30th, Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, Executive Director and Senior Minister of the UUUM, will join us in the pulpit where she will preach on, “Making Beloved Community Real.”
“Headquartered at the First Church in Roxbury campus, the UU Urban Ministry operates programs that provide education and enrichment programming for children and youth, emergency shelter for individuals and families fleeing from domestic violence, affordable housing and intentional community for young women, and volunteer-based capacity-building services for Roxbury-serving nonprofits. We make use of an extensive pool of volunteers from Boston-area UU congregations, colleges/universities, and the Roxbury community to offer a greater level of programming than our staff alone could provide. An important part of our mission is bringing together people from different walks of life to work together toward justice and equality.” For more information, visit their website.
