All Souls Mission


Transformation. Connection. Possibility.


All Souls is an open and welcoming religious community that nurtures possibilities and builds connections to forge redemptive change in ourselves, our city, and our world.


Within Ourselves as Individuals
Regular participants find sanctuary and religious challenge to move toward spiritual maturity. We:

  • Connect to the transcendent through worship and music that enriches and challenges.
  • Open ourselves to receive and offer compassionate spiritual care.
  • Discover and deepen our personal sense of spiritual calling.
  • Articulate a compelling vision of our Unitarian Universalist identity.
  • Pursue lives of meaning and purpose.

Among the People of All Souls
We connect to one another with love and kindness. We:

  • Welcome and include all who come into contact with the church community.
  • Find new possibilities in one another as we connect across differences and generations.
  • Embrace religious education that strengthens the Unitarian Universalist identity of our children, youth, and adults of all ages.
  • Maintain an attractive, accessible, fully-utilized facility appropriate for our needs.
  • Generously support All Souls with our treasure, talent, and time. 

Beyond All Souls
We strive to create the world that ought to be. We:

  • Gather people with diverse perspectives to engage issues that are challenging and difficult.
  • Demonstrate the vitality of faith in our lives.
  • Promote and develop Unitarian Universalism in our city, the nation, and the world.
  • Serve our neighbors and our broader community.
  • Collaborate with partners to create a more just and compassionate world.
