All Souls Ritual
On Sunday, October 30th, we will celebrate a special All Souls Ritual to remember and honor members of the congregation, members of our extended families, friends, neighbors, and coworkers who have died over the past 12 months. We will read their names aloud during the service that morning. You are also welcome to bring a framed photo of them with you, which will be displayed on the chancel. Although pets are considered family as well, we kindly request that pets be included for our Children’s Chapel service only. If someone dear to you died during the past year, call our office and provide your name, the name of the person who died and their relationship to you.
Our Annual Fall Auction on November 19th
Our annual fall auction is the greatest UU event of the year! This year Let’s Dance and Party Like it’s 1999 (a tribute to David Bowie and Prince). Clear your calendars and pull out your best purple or glam rock outfit! The auction is always a special opportunity to support our congregation by sharing what we love and do with fellow UU members. Through our donations, bids, and service this event is our best fundraiser and we encourage everyone to participate.

Welcome to the U!
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, now in its 118th year, enjoys a rich history of spiritual exploration and social justice activism. For us, it's difficult to tell those elements apart because we find them to be two aspects of the same human, religious impulse. It's much like breathing in and breathing out.
Here members are not told what to believe, but we don't simply ask, "What do you believe?" We also ask, "What difference does your belief make - in your life and in the world?" We feel that religion is about life, about finding and making meaning in it, and we regularly discover that we do this best in community.
