First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany


As we navigate this COVID-19 pandemic, we are in a unique position as a Faith Community. We have the opportunity to use what power we have to put into action our principles, practice and model social distancing and do our part to flatten the curve – that is, to slow the spread of COVID-19 as much as we can to avoid having our healthcare system inundated. This is our responsibility to our community and our obligation to each other.

We have moved all Sunday services and some groups online.

Albany Unitarian Universalist celebrates Unitarian Universalism–a liberal, non-creedal faith tradition that is based on a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Unitarian Universalists draw meaning from many faith traditions, embrace scientific reasoning, and express their beliefs through acts of social justice and compassion. For the second time in its history, Albany Unitarian Universalist has declared itself a Sanctuary congregation, repeating the action taken in 1984 in response to refugees fleeing violence in Central America. Albany Unitarian Universalist welcomes everyone.

After much careful deliberation, the Auction Committee has decided to cancel the live, onsite auction for this year. Our next comprehensive Auction will be held in March of 2021. Donors and paid attendees for this year’s auction will receive more details soon by email.

In the meantime, the Auction Committee will work towards co-sponsoring a “Welcome Home Gathering” to be held when the pandemic resolves. While celebrating our community and togetherness, we hope to offer silent and fixed auction items as an additional activity during the event.

Thanks for your support. Please contact Randy Rosette with any questions:  rosette_jensen@juno
