Welcome to First Parish


Join us for Walk in the Woods on Thanksgiving morning.

If you would like to begin your day of Thanksgiving with a connection to friends and an appreciation of the natural world join us at 9:00 AM on the 27th at Greenough Conservation land in Carlisle. This is a tradition among several First Parishioners and their dogs that has evolved over the years. The walk is through a lovely – but fairly uneven – terrain and is a little less than three miles long. We share coffee and muffins in the parking lot at the end. This is a great opportunity to get to know a few more people in a less crowded venue.


We are a community grounded in the liberal religious tradition of Unitarian Univeralists. We strive to provide a warm, open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion.

While our personal beliefs may vary greatly, we share a commitment to building and nurturing our beloved community, both within our congregation and in the wider world
