Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland

Our Mission

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland is a open, liberally religious, welcoming congregation offering fellowship, an opportunity for free expression of ideas and spiritual growth. As such we strive to support one another, explore moral assumptions, promote social action and celebrate the interdependant web of of life. 


The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland (Formerly the First Unitarian Society of Rockland County) founded in 1956, is an independent religious organization affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are the denomination's only congregation in Rockland County. Our belief is in a religion without dogma, which allows the individual to develop a faith and values meaningful to his or her own life.

Unitarian Universalists focus their attention on human existence in the natural world and universe. Our concerns include spiritual, intellectual and ethical values as applied to the social and life issues of today.


 The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part


Current Events


Welcome back!  The whole of the Board of Trustees is very happy to begin a new year with a new minister. Rev. Dawn Sangrey is excited to begin with us (Check out her Bio HERE).  She has participated with both BOW and BOT retreats over the summer. It is an exciting time.  At our BOT retreat we have chosen a theme of Generosity.  Let us all try to help the UUCR, our members, and our community at large.  There will, of course, be challenges (such is the way of the world), but together we can do great things. We are always happy to hear suggestions from the community at how we can grow together.  If you look, you will see that we have new carpet in the two large RE rooms.  There was a leak at the beginning of the summer, and we decided to take that opportunity to get the rooms in better shape.  So many people have been working cleaning.  That is generosity of time.  There are all sorts of ways to be generous.  It is not all about money (although that is something we certainly need to keep the lights on).  Helping out with RE, cleaning up, greeting, serving on boards and committees - all ways of being generous to our community.  The BOT wishes to keep the first plate of the month to be given to the MLK center for the first half of the year and then perhaps allow the rest of the congregation to have some input on what organization in our larger community we can help support for the next half of the worship year.  Let's all jump in!
