December 29, 5:30–8:30 pm, at First Church in Roxbury
Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, ED of the UU Urban Ministry, through Follen’s Urban Ministry Congregational Team, invites all Follenites to celebrate Kwanza with the UUUM and Paige Academy, a close friend and partner of the Urban Ministry.
This event is a fundraiser for Paige Academy, a local, culturally affirming independent school located right down the street from First Church. Attending is a great way for Follenites to support a local Roxbury organization and to make new connections across differences, in these trying times of social and racial injustice.
This special Kwanza event is bringing diverse communities together at First Church for music, food, drink, and fellowship — all in support of a wonderful cause. Rev. Mary Margaret is participating in the Unity Candle Lighting (unity is one of the seven principles of Kwanza), and she would love for us to join her. Showing up is the best kind of support.
To purchase tickets the suggested donation is $40. If you can’t come, please consider purchasing a ticket and donating it for a Roxbury/Paige Academy family to attend.
