Seasonal Cycle of Celebrations

The religious symbols (which adorn our sanctuary’s chancel and also appear on the southern wall of our building) represent a spectrum of cultural expressions, histories, celebrations, rituals, and world-views.  Throughout the year at UUCW we strive to honor the breadth and depth of the spiritual and religious sentiments represented by these symbols as well as civil holidays. Through Sunday morning celebrations, special services, and opportunities to explore these traditions in our life-span religious exploration program, people from various spiritual paths find their religious home at UUCW.
