Gather the Waters – return from summer break

This Service will be our annual Gather the Waters. We share meaningful moments from the summer. You may bring a small container of water to pour into a common vessel.

UU Water Communion

The Water Communion, also sometimes called Water Ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship service in the 1980s. Like MMUUF, many UU congregations hold a Water Communion once a year, often at the beginning of the new church year (September).

Each person or family may bring a small amount of water from a place that is special to them. As the water is added, the person who brought it tells why this water is special to them. The water represents our shared faith coming from many different sources. The congregation may bless the communal water to use later, during child dedication ceremonies and similar events.
