Additional programing also continues online.  Check the website and ebulletins delivered on Thursdays for details!  There may be occasional outdoor offerings as weather permits.


The Courtyards are available for programs that practice healthy spacing and mask wearing.  Please reserve outdoor spaces on the website for small group meetings.


The Office is operating online and is closed to public access at least through the end of September.


Staff including the ministers, religious education, music and the office staff are working online from home.  You can reach them by email.  As needed, office staff are picking up mail and attending to brief and essential tasks while they continue to work remotely.


Food Link is using the sanctuary as a site for food distribution to area food pantries during this time of extraordinary need.


Mariposa, a bilingual Montessori School that operates at First Parish, is open and following state guidelines for health practices during COVID-19.
