The CUC was launched on May 14, 1961, when about 50 Unitarian Universalists from Halifax to Vancouver voted the Canadian Unitarian Council into being. Our journey to 2021 has been eventful, filled with significant milestones in human rights and social justice areas.
During this weekend, we commemorate and honour the work of those who have laid the foundations for our Canadian UU faith community, and press on to the work that needs to be done to bring us to a world in which our interdependence calls us to love and justice.
Please plan to attend these special events.
- Friday, November 26: Regional Gatherings – these will be opportunities for UUs to connect within their own regions, share a worship experience, and ponder some questions and topics in common.
Western Region Gathering – 6:00 – 7:30 pm MT
- Saturday, November 27: CUC Special Meeting – 12:00 – 2:30 pm ET.
