Finding Our UU Center

Rev. Marcus Fogliano
 In 2017 the Unitarian Universalist Association set out on a journey to find our center: that which calls us as a congregation to associate with congregation across the globe. The Rev. Marcus Fogliano, Project Manager to the Office of the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association, will lead us through this journey to the central values the Article II Study Commission has presented for our consideration.

We will Share the Plate with RAMM

The mission of this non-profit organization has since been revised to address the need to invest resources in helping gifted minority high school students pursue a college education.
To promote excellence in African American youth and professionals in the community by providing programs inclusive of diverse educational and cultural opportunities
