By this Sunday, we will have experienced an entire week of Advent. Advent, the season of waiting...

Advent Midweek Worship

To observe Advent, during the bustle of the holiday season, we will step into the quiet and candle light on Thursdays, 6:30-7:00pm, beginning December 1st, for some centering time of prayer and song.  


Advent Centering Prayer

Beginning Wednesday, November 30, there will be an opportunity to meet with others for centering prayer with Advent focus. If you are looking for a time of silent contemplation and prayer in community, please join us for Centering Prayer on Wednesdays during Advent.  There is an on-site opportunity @ 7:30pm in the Lindsay Room.


As many of you know, the United Parish Stretching into Justice Ministry Team’s theme is End Mass Incarceration. So, for the second year, toys are being collected for children of incarcerated parents.

Once again during Advent season, United Parish will be supporting Coat Boston, City Mission Society's Coat Drive. (Deadline:

Coat Boston was launched in 2009 with the generous support of Citizens Bank Foundation. Since then, Coat Boston has distributed over 12,000 new winter coats to underserved and homeless children and youth in Boston. The goal for 2016 is 3000 coats!

Pastor Kent French and Pastor Alisa Joyce both signed the statement printed below, released by a local group of Boston-based interfaith leaders.  Read the Boston Globe article HERE.
