Child Dedications are a Unitarian Universalist rite of passage for babies and young children. Many will include the following elements:

  • A blessing for the new life or adoption of a child
  • An expression of the parent or guardian’s hopes for the child
  • A dedication of Godparents or a “Nurturing Community”
  • A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child and family

This ritual is held during our Sunday service several times a year. If you are interested in having your child dedicated, please contact Rev. Amy Freedman, our Minister of Religious Education:
