UUCM is proud to be recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) as a Welcoming Congregation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people.
In our sanctuary hangs a beautiful stained glass Rainbow Flag, complete with a pink triangle chalice. The pink triangle is the symbol Nazi Germany forced gay men to wear in concentration camps and it has since been reclaimed as a symbol of solidarity and pride. This artwork was designed by one of our former interim ministers, Rev. Margaret Keip. It was sponsored by UUCM's Interweave Committee and created by local artist Joy Del Santo.
What Does it Mean to be a "Welcoming Congregation"?
As a UUA Welcoming Congregation, UUCM commits to being inclusive and expressive of the concerns of LGBTQ people at every level of congregational life — in worship, in program, and in social occasions — welcoming not only their presence but the unique gifts of their lives as well.
