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

It's  Time  for the Easter Can Hunt!

Several years ago, Gale Lavinder came up with the idea that instead of having the children search for plastic eggs on our grounds on Easter, they could search for cans of food that we could donate to the community. The tradition has stuck, the kids love it, and we have donated more than a thousand pounds of food since then. Please bring in donations on April 6, April 13, and early in the morning of April 20. Canned fruit, vegetables, chili, stew, soup, and tuna fish are all needed by People to People (and tuna fish cans are great for little hands to find!) Look for a canned food donation box by the entrance. Thanks! Together we can make a difference. Tracey Hancock for the RE Committee


During the month of April there will be a recycling box at the back of the worship room for donations of old/worn-out sneakers - ones that would otherwise go to the landfill. Nike Reuse-a-Shoe takes worn-out athletic shoes and grinds them down to create a new material called Nike Grind, which is used to make high-quality sports surfaces including courts, turf fields, tracks and more. Bring in your worn-out athletic shoes of any kind or brand, and we will bring them to Nike for recycling.

Thanks, Hillary Torres
