UU Urban Ministry Begins Work on Roxbury Landmark

The scaffolding embracing the façade of First Church in Roxbury signifies the UUUM’s embrace of the building as a historic and architectural treasure, and as a resource for building community, furthering social justice, and promoting the arts in Roxbury. Plans are ambitious, and include critical repairs to the building’s envelope and interior, and to its mechanical systems—it’s a long-term undertaking. Follen’s Urban Ministry Congregational Team  will post occasional updates as this exciting initiative progresses.
