Monday-Saturday Stroller Ban in Effect 

No strollers will be permitted inside the buildings at All Souls from Monday-Saturday. This will be true for ALL guests including members of the All Souls School, and attendees to programs that rent space here in our buildings such as Super Soccer Stars, Free to Be Under Three, Kids In Sports, etc.

Strollers may be parked outside in the Garden, provided that they do no block the staircases and ramp. We apologize for the inconvenience.



We are a religious community

  • In the experience of worship, we gather to contemplate the mystery of God, interpret the wisdom of religion, and explore the insights of science. Our purpose is to awaken our sense of the sacred and renew our resolve to transform ourselves and our world.
  • As human beings, we all emerge from the same Source and share the same Destiny. As a community of faith, we make shared commitments and offer mutual support. As indivi­duals, we each bear responsibility for our own beliefs and actions.
  • We practice a discipline of gratitude, by which we acknowledge our utter dependence on the people and world around us, and we practice an ethic of gratitude, by which we accept our obligation to nurture others and the world in return.

A Welcoming Congregation

From the UUA website:
"In 1987 the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) established the Common Vision Planning Committee. This committee found many negative attitudes, deep prejudices, and profound ignorance about bisexual, gay, and lesbian people, which resulted in the exclusion of bisexual, gay, and lesbian people from their churches. As a result of these findings, the delegates of the 1989 UUA General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to initiate the Welcoming Congregation program to educate its members....The Welcoming Congregation Program is a completely volunteer program for congregations that see a need to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people."
