Next Services . . .

Sunday services are at 10 am at Lourdes Hall, 457 Gould Street in Winona.
In order to make our service more handicap accessible and welcoming to people with mobility problems, we are changing our main entrance to the Howard Street entrance where there is an elevator.  Our outside sign will be placed by this door and soon magnetic signs will be posted directing people to the UU service and Quaker Meeting. The front entrance on the east side will still be open for the time being.

WHAT DO WE CELEBRATE ON MOTHER’S DAY?
Jim will provide a few poems and quotes to get us started, after which we will share our thoughts about Moms: being a mom, having a mom, missing a mom, lacking a mom, wanting to be a mom–whatever your particular experience might be.

May 15: Coordinator: Laura Armstrong
FLOWER SERVICE (No Religious Education)
The Flower Service is a traditional UU celebration of spring.  It was created by Norbert Capek who founded the Unitarian Church in Prague.  He wanted a unique celebration that would not alienate any who had left other religious traditions.  In our version of the service, we encourage all members of the fellowship to bring a flower that is blooming in their yards (or a purchased blossom) and place it in a vase which will be on our “Joys and Concerns” table.

HOPE CEREMONY
During our traditional end of the year Hope Service we will be recognizing new members, dedicating their children, and celebrating graduates.

All religions, all this singing, one song. 
The differences are just illusion and vanity. 
The sun’s light looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall, 
and a lot different on this other one, but it’s still one light.
Rumi.
