Youth in the congregation are paired with an adult congregant and they exchange anonymous messages and small keepsakes each week. After a few weeks, they have a picnic and meet their Secret Pal. If you like to have a cool code name and make a new friend, we invite you to sign up for this fun program

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY PARTY
Join our UUCLB community as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Listen to music, dance, and listen to and tell jokes. Delicious snacks and libations served.
The Seder is an important part of our Unitarian Universalist heritage, celebrating the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. In our celebration, we also recognize our UU commitment to the cause of freedom for all people. Furthermore, it’s a party, a feast full of joy and family fun, which thrives on the full participation of many people.
