Who are We?   We are a religiously diverse, LGBTQ+ embracing, intentionally multiracial and multicultural Unitarian Universalist faith community.
In our congregation, we journey together in Love toward restoring spiritual wholeness. We were founded as a Universalist church in central Philadelphia in 1820 and relocated to the Mount Airy neighborhood in 1938. Join us for Sunday Services weekly in our air-conditioned sanctuary at 11am, followed by our coffee hour. Sunday school and child care are available. Summer services offer a potluck coffee hour.

We welcome people from any religious background who seek personal and spiritual growth in an extended family

atmosphere. Our denomination has no creed or doctrinal tests. All who are in sympathy with our beliefs and are willing to join us in supporting the goals of this church and the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association are welcomed into membership.

Our building is now accessible to people with disabilities!
It features a ramp to the main sanctuary and a wheelchair lift to the Social Hall beneath. Two accessible restrooms have been created: one on the main level of the Hale Building and another on the lower level of the sanctuary to make our Fellowship Hall more accessible to our congregants, visitors and renters.

From our Summer Minister

I think that many times, as folx think about making a pilgrimage, they lean into the first definition that the Oxford Learner's Dictionaries provides - "a journey to a holy place for religious reasons" - whether this be a self-guided pilgrimage to the Seven Sacred Pools in Sedona, AZ or following the path Egeria, a Western European nun, traveled to reach the Holy Land in the fourth century.

But pilgrimages are also about the practice of connecting to the sacredness or the holiness of the journey that one is physically and spiritually making themselves - the movement/transformation that one is experiencing and embodying. This invites us to expand the idea of pilgrimage to places that are close to us, invites us to bring the pilgrim practice into our everyday lives.
