This Sunday we will focus on the Unitarian Universalists’ Urban Ministry and the role our church plays in it. From youth programs to running Boston's oldest domestic violence shelter, the Urban Ministry transforms lives, not only of the inner city program participants, but also of the volunteers who give generously of their time.
Our Minister Tom Rosiello will be back leading worship and some of FPC's great jazz players will be joining Mike, Sanghee and the choir for some great music making. Our guest preacher will be the new Executive Director and Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry, Mary Margaret Earl. Before coming to the Urban Ministry she spent the previous 10 years at McAuley Ministries, a faith-based nonprofit in Providence, RI, that provides food, shelter and clothing to those who were homeless or at risk of becoming so. She also is immediate and past president of the Board of the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless, and served on the Pro Bono Advisory Board, which brings together large Providence law firms and under-served communities in need of free legal assistance. After both services there will be a forum where you can learn more about our Urban Ministry. You won't want to miss this Sunday!
