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.

Featured Upcoming Events

Worship Service: Community Memorial Day Observance by Rev. Bruce Taylor, First Parish Church and Ken Johnson, Ashby Congregational Church

Sunday, May 28, 10:00 AM

First Parish Church and the Ashby Congregational Church join for this community worship service, to be held outdoors on the Common (if the weather is good) or indoors at the Congregational Church (if it rains).

On Memorial Day, we honor the memory of men and women who died in military service, and our loved ones from past generations who continue to live on in blessed memory. In today's service, the ministers of our two congregations will reflect on the importance of memory in shaping our lives, giving meaning to our past and to our future.

at: Ashby Common in Ashby, MA

Casual Sunday theme: "Summertime!"

Sunday, June 4, 10:00 AM

A "Casual Sunday" is a quiet morning of fellowship and reflection, with no formal church service. We gather in the Parish Hall to share stories, readings, poetry, music and videos on the theme of the service.

Video note: Since we have no Internet connection at the church, send a link to YouTube or other videos to Ward several days before the service.

hospitality: Gloria Foster

Worship Service: "Healing Moments" by Rev. John Pastor, UU Society of Gardner

Sunday, June 11, 10:00 AM

When I was a Chaplain Intern in a hospital I was told, "You can heal but you cannot cure." During my time in the hospital I learned what this meant. Many of the world's spiritual traditions have stories of healing. How can we be healed today? I will be offering Reiki during this service.

hospitality: Katherine & Bill Stanwood
