Do you know the story of Pentecost? Followers of Jesus were gathered for a feast called Shavuot. This special celebration commemorated The Law on Sinai (laws not included in the Torah that were passed on orally). But on this particular day, the Holy Spirit descended upon everyone like a rush of wind.

Stewardship at United Parish

Church provides us with so many good things: community, a place to grow spiritually, opportunities to pause and reflect on what life is all about, ways to serve others and work for social justice.  In order to offer these good things, churches, like all community and spiritual organizations, require the resources to employ a staff, maintain a building, sustain ministries and programs, and give back to the wider world.


United Parish in Brookline is a dynamic, multi-denominational church community located in a diverse suburban town a stone’s throw from Boston’s many educational and cultural institutions. We are committed to sharing our progressive faith and vision for diversity, inclusion, and social justice with the wider world.
