History of First Parish

 

firstparishPeople have gathered in a church in this place each Sunday for almost 300 years -- longer than there’s been a United States of America. The town of Arlington has had several names, and our church has had several names. We did not start out as a Unitarian Universalist church. Part of our history is how we became one.

Longtime member Diane Taraz Shriver explored the fascinating story of First Parish in services in 2016 and 2017. Her reflections from those services are below — enjoy!
