This week’s plate collection will benefit our Transylvanian Partner Church: 60% of your contribution will subsidize cultural and religious programming for children, youth, and adults; 40% will be invested in merit-based scholarships for youth to help them attend high school outside the village, or attend university.

Although there are 460 church members in the TorockóUnitarian congregation, the average family net income of $600 per month makes enrichment programming offered by the church a luxury. The church budget is only $30,000 per year. Since there is no high school in the town, families must pay $130/month for their youth to attend school in a city that is not easily accessible. Returning home to visit family is costly; it is also a luxury for these youth. Your donation to our Partner Church initiative will enable the Torockócongregation members to enjoy “luxuries” we take for granted in Wellesley.
Please honor our longstanding partnership with the TorockóUnitarians by making a generous donation. Checks should be written to UUSWH, with “Partner Church” on the memo line.
Grow the Good, Fund the Growth - A Talk by Rev. Kelly during Fellowship Hour
Join us as we officially launch our annual Stewardship Drive this Sunday with a lunch and presentation by Rev. Kelly immediately after the worship service. This year, we are thrilled to have received a very generous challenge grant from three families. As a group, these families will match dollar for dollar (up to $25,000) all donations we raise over our base budget target of $320, 000. If we can “catch all the match,” we will have $50,000 in additional funds to invest in growing our congregation. That money will be invested over the next two years, primarily in personnel and programming. Immediately following the service on February 24, Rev. Kelly will launch the Stewardship Drive by sharing her assessment and general recommendations on how those matched funds might best be spent to "Grow the Good.” Please join us for the lunch and presentation to kick off this exciting effort on behalf of our congregation!
