Our new chalice is lighted for the first time
The flaming chalice is the primary symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith. Our founders bought our congregation’s first chalice twenty-five years ago, but it has started to show signs of wear. For our 25th anniversary, we commissioned a new chalice. Christian Hopkins, a member of the Narragansett Indian Tribe, hand-crafted our new chalice out of red cedar and mountain laurel, two native woods. At our Sunday service on December 10, we lighted the new chalice for the first time.
