Once again, we are in a holy countdown. Some of us are making our lists and checking them twice. Some of us are fully caught up in the year-end frenzy of American holiday cheer.

Christmas Eve Worship

As we have done for decades at United Parish in Brookline, we will celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Eve with a family/intergenerational worship with pageant, a musical offering of Vivaldi's Gloria, and a Festival of Lessons and Carols.


Advent Worship - December 18

Join us for the last of 3 mid-week Advent worship services this Thursday @ 6:30pm in the Chapel. These times together have been a glimpse of quiet and reflection amid the bustle of this busy season of the year.  We will reflect on our Advent theme of Generosity with meditation, reflection, and contemplation in a meaningful and engaging way.


Did you know that Dec. 21st is the darkest day of the year? Would you like to help extend light into the darkness? Join us in Willet Hall at 9:45am that day for the Intergenerational Church School event, sharing the nativity story through song and scripture. We will focus on music and verses that proclaim how Jesus, the light of the world, was born.

This year’s Advent Generosity Activity provides opportunities to become actively involved in the many ongoing United Parish outreach activities. The tree in the chapel is covered with stars.

The 4-6th grade Church School class thanks you for your support of their bake sale and change collection projects over the past month. They raised $252 for Mudzini Kwetu, a home for orphaned and abandoned girls whose mothers died in childbirth or from some illness for which they did not have the money to get medical treatment.
