It’s time to sign up for the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner that we host on Thanksgiving Day. We extend a community-wide invitation to this annual dinner, which brings in around 175 people every year. For many, this is their only chance at a family-style traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

For the past eight years the Boston University Trombone Choir has performed annually in worship services at the United Parish in Brookline, dazzling us with concert repertoire before and after worship, and elevating our congregational hymns to extraordinary heights!

The Nursery has expanded! With all of the latest additions to the congregation, the United Parish nursery has expanded to make room for a nap room for our littlest members. The room will have cribs, a changing table, and comfortable chairs for breastfeeding/rocking a baby.
