Our History

Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Edmonton


Our VISION

The Unitarian Church of Edmonton — a liberal religious, multi-generational congregation:

We celebrate a rich mosaic of free-thinking, spiritually-questing individuals joined in common support and action. We welcome diversity, pursue the common good, and work for justice. We believe in the compassion of the individual heart, the warmth of community, and the search for meaning in our lives.

June 3, 2012 “Sun Day” Rev. Brian J. Kiely
At the start of Eco-solar week, let us celebrate our deep spiritual connections with the life-giving sun and consider how this wonderful free resource could be an even greater part of our lives.

June 10, 2012 “Flower Communtion” Rev. Brian J. Kiely

Bring a flower from home (or store) to share in this beautiful Unitarian tradition that has been part of our congregation for many years. We bring one kind of flower and then choose another to take with us.

June 17, 2012 “Blessing of the Pets” Rev. Brian J. Kiely
An annual tradition, bring your winged, furred and scaly friends to church for a celebration of the role animals play in our lives. For our part the girls and I will be on hand with Herman the dog, Emerald the guinea pig and Timmy the lovebird!

June 24 , 2012 “Picnic Service” Rev. Brian J. Kiely
If the weather is nice we will meet in the park across the street for some relaxed time chatting, sharing food and, when the time seems right – probably around 11ish, a short service celebrating our community. Bring food to share and chairs or blankets, sports stuff and park toys. If the weather is inclement, we shall picnic in our sanctuary.
There will be a memorial for Kristina Romanyshyn at 2:00 at the church.

It is drawn from the history of the Christian Reformation in Czechoslovakia where Jan Hus asserted that all members of the congregation, and not only the priests, should be allowed to drink from the chalice at holy communion. Hus was burned at the stake for his efforts, but his followers persisted in building a church that believes in the "priesthood of all believers."
