A center to celebrate life in all its diversity, richness and sorrows

Empower our congregation to:

Educate one another, both young and old

Enlighten and challenge one another to grow spiritually, intellectually and socially

Discover and create a caring, supportive and healing environment endowed with a sense of
religious roots and wings

Encourage our congregation to:

Share our beliefs with others

Become an active presence in our community for the common good



Our Vision

In a nurturing and democratic atmosphere of openness, mutual respect and friendship, the Carbondale Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a welcoming, diverse congregation of individuals who share values and seek to celebrate life, support each other in our inward and outward search for spiritual meaning, provide a liberal religious presence, and strive for compassion and justice in our community and our world.
