Living Our Faith: Organizations Supported
by First Parish Members

"living our faith"In January 2013, the Social Justice Committee held a service entitled "Living Our Faith." A list of organizations that congregants meaningfully support was started that morning as people who attended the service were invited to fill out a form telling us about the organizations where they volunteer or work, or to which they donate money. We continue to collect names and contact information for social justice work important to members of our community.

As we compiled the list, the amount and diversity of our collective involvement impressed us. The next step in this work, after we pause to recognize the deep social justice commitment displayed here, will be to foster connections within our community among those seeking to engage with organizations on this list.

If you see an organization or topic on this list that you would like to get more information about please contact the Social Justice Committee at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
