As Unitarian Universalists, we covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of all persons. As we engage in an ongoing search for truth and meaning. Whoever you are, whomever you love, however you inhabit your body, and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome into the life of this church.
We covenant to create a caring, affirming, and inclusive community that invites us to become our best selves, and to serve the wider community and the world.
We Welcome Visitors
Visitors and Newcomers are always welcome at All Souls. Our building is accessible and we have two single-stall, gender neutral restrooms, one of which is ADA compliant, with a baby changing station. We have assistive listening devices for use during service.
Location We are located at 196 Elm Street (corner of Elm and Church Streets) in Braintree, Massachusetts. Parking is available on Charles Street and in the church parking lot off Charles Street. Minutes from Route 3, I-93 and I-95.
Child Dedications Rather than holding baptisms or christenings, Unitarian Universalist congregations have child dedication ceremonies for infants and children. Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parent and the minister, working closely together. Many will include the following elements:
A blessing for the new life of the child
An expression of the parent or parents’ hopes for the child
A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child
If you are interested in having your child dedicated, please contact us. See Calendar & Events for activities that you may be interested in. We have ongoing group meetups you are welcome to participate in.
