Five Points Cluster

Social Action Workshop: Widening the Circle

     The Five Points Cluster congregations are planning a workshop: Widening the Circle/The 8th Principle* on Saturday, March 5th. Everyone in the Cluster congregations are invited to attend the workshop. Nicole Burch from Foxborough Universalist is the workshop leader with assistance from Meck Groot, from the New England Region UUA. Workshop organizers are already planning ahead for socially distant discussions.

     * The 8th principle is “We covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions. For more information, visit https://www.8thprincipleuu.org/

     Cheryl Brigante's view:  The 8th Principle is an important process going on in our national UUA, fueled by all the congregations in the greater UU community. We (Unity) can not lose sight of how we and our fellow UUs have the power to shape our faith and actions.  I encourage everyone to mark your calendar, March 5 for this important workshop. Masks and social distancing are already part of the planning.  

What is the Five Points Cluster

The Five Points Cluster is made up of six Unitarian Universalist Congregations in adjacent towns in SE Massachusetts, united for fellowship, mutual support, and coordinated social action.  The Five Points Cluster congregations are:  BrocktonCantonFoxboroughSharonStoughton, and North Easton

Shared Worship

The Five Points Cluster congregations choose a specific Sunday once every month or so where we gather to share worship together at one of our churches. It is a wonderful way to experience different kinds of worship, get to know our neighbors and siblings in faith, and offer hospitality to one another.
