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 interdependent 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

Many thanks to the Auction Committee who raised $6200 for our lean budget. It was a special night of fun, good food and socializing! I also want to thank all of you who have paid your pledges early, on time and even extra, to help us get through this tight financial period.  We are hoping to have a new school rental by next year.

Helping Hands News

As many of you know by now, the Helping Hands format has changed.  The guests will no longer be staying at the various houses of worship, but be housed in Bldg. D at the Health complex in Pomona at the Warming Center.   This is beneficial to the clients, as they will not have to go from place to place all winter.

We will continue to be active with the HH organization.  We are asked to work at Bldg. D from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. during our assigned evenings. We will be serving food and assisting in the clean-up, but especially in interacting with the guests.  This is a new and exciting role for all involved.

To work at the county facility, all volunteers must be 'vetted'.  Many of you have already filled out the paperwork.  Anyone else wishing to volunteer, obtain paperwork from me, and I will get it to the proper channels.
