Join us for the UU tradition of Flower Communion at this service, when we honor our uniqueness, diversity and community.  Bring a flower to add to the communal bouquet; we’ll have extra to share, and help us celebrate Mothers Day as well. 
Religious exploration for youngsters and childcare for infants and toddlers will be available during the service.
