Passover Seder at Ashby First Parish Church

Seder TablePassover Seder on Saturday, April 15

We began our annual First Parish UU Passover Seders in 1999. This year the Seder will be on Saturday, April 15, at 6:00 pm in our Parish Hall. Al Futterman will again be leading the Seder, using a progressive Haggadah. We encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to experience this traditional Jewish celebration.

An RSVP (with the number of people) is important so we know how much food to prepare for the Seder meal. You can RSVP ...

Please let us know what you'd like to contribute to the Seder meal.

Worship Service: "The Five Practices of Dharmic Christianity" by Wil Darcangelo, First Parish Church UU of Fitchburg

Sunday, April 23, 10:00 AM

Much has been said about the dogma of religious Christianity. Many of us are greatly challenged by it. But hidden inside the jewel-encrusted bottle lingers still a deeper message, a life practice. This service will explore the five practices of the dharma of Christianity: Nonresistance, Forgiveness, Compassion, Hospitality, and Empowerment.

Wil Darcangelo is an MDiv/MAGIL candidate at Andover Newton Theological School and anticipates graduating this coming May. He is the Spiritual Coordinator at First Parish UU of Fitchburg, where he has served since 2014. He is the founding Executive Director of an all-ages creative empowerment program called Tribe Music Mentorship Project, currently in its seventh year. Wil is also a stained glass artist and a carpenter.

Wil writes a weekly column on spiritual optimism in the information age, "Hopeful Thinking," which appears on his blog and in the Fitchburg Sentinel & Enterprise.

Worship Service: "Coyote Goes to Church" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, April 30, 10:00 AM

Coyote, the trickster deity, plays an important part in Native American folklore and spiritual practice. Alternately cunning and foolish, he brings wisdom by overturning cherished assumptions, testing the bounds of the status quo and revealing new possibilities. What would an encounter with Coyote look like, to Unitarian Universalists in the twenty-first century?

hospitality: Noël McGonigle
