Welcome!

Greetings from UUEstrie, a liberal spiritual community that first gathered in the village of North Hatley back in 1886, as the First Universalist Church of North Hatley.

Join us Sundays at 10:30am for our weekly service led either by our minister Rev. Carole Martignacco or a guest lecturer.

This will be a participatory gathering in our Stoddard Hall–a Drum and Song Circle led by Amy Panetta. Amy is a UU from New Jersey, now living in the Townships. She is a music teacher by profession, and looking forward to leading us in this activity, one of our ‘alternate’ winter services. We will build community while drumming together and joining our voice together in a few songs. If you have hand drums, please bring them. If not, we will have a number to choose from.

Storytelling

Once a year we choose to feed our souls on a Sunday morning through the time-honored medium of Story, nothing but stories. All are welcome to tell if they like, in English or in French, or just listen. Should you wish to tell, please let Keith know. A potluck lunch will follow the storytelling. All are welcome to stay, and to bring a little something to add to the lunch if they can.
