Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council gives  UUFA member award

Member, Heather Kleiner, was awarded the UUPCC 2016 Stewardship Award for her 26 year tireless promotion of our relationship with our Partner church in Okland Romania.  Heather could not attend the annual UUPCC meeting at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in Columbus, Ohio, to personally receive the award, so the certificate and beautiful hand carved wooden plaque were presented to her during the UUFA’s annual Romanian Thanksgiving celebration.

Fourth Sunday Lunch Celebration in September 2017

Unitarians in Romania celebrate the last Sunday in September with a Thanksgiving Communion, one of four annual communion Sundays. UUFA once again held its own celebration with a Fourth Sunday Lunch, featuring our version of delicious Transylvanian fare.

Our Partner Church will be the Cause of the Month for October 2017

Over the years, UUFA has supported the congregation and its missions in a variety of ways, including establishing a bakery and a dairy, repairing and maintaining buildings, and supporting high school students. In 2017, our Share the Plate contributions will go towards providing stipends for two students who are now attending the Unitarian seminary and one student attending the university.
