First Parish is committed to making the world a better place. We support social justice efforts that extend human rights to all persons. And we engage in service projects designed to help those who need our help.

Social justice

Social justice includes our efforts to make this a more just world for LGBTQIA+ people — our support of the UU Urban Ministry — and our support of peace. Learn more about our social justice efforts.

Our pollinator garden

Thanks to Eagle Scout candidate Maebh Casey, First Parish has a pollinator garden. This demonstration garden shows us how we can all support the endangered pollinators that keep life on earth going. Learn more about our pollinator garden.
