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 all who donated the much-needed winter clothing items for our Helping Hands guests. It was 'warmly' received by those at the center in
Spring Valley. This has been an especially difficult winter for those with no housing. Last Sat., Sacred Heart Church housed 42!!! This is an all-time record. Our guests will be visiting us again on April 10, 11, and 12. Hopefully, the snow will have stopped by then. Thanks again, Barbara Francis
