Help us meet our goal by donating today on FAITHIFY.org!

 

Our campaign is in partnership with our home church, First Universalist Church of Yarmouth, Maine, a congregation that is committed to expanding its connections to our Unitarian roots. With your support, we can help Unitarian villages in Transylvania create new community gathering spaces––so essential to preserving and strengthening village traditions and culture.

Create a safe play space for children in Városfalva

Varosfalva_playground

Villagers in this Unitarian community want their children to grow up in a safe and healthy environment. They have organized a “kaláka” to create a playground, which they feel is vital to a child’s development. The new playground will serve the village’s 30 children, aged 3-13, as well as parents and the elderly who will all benefit from this communal gathering space.

 

 

Raise the walls on a new church hall wing in Torockoszentgyorgy

work-site-behind-churchThis Unitarian village highly values its spiritual heritage. The center of Szentgyorgy life is the church hall, which is in urgent need of renovation and expansion. With funding, volunteers will construct a new wing with a larger kitchen and storage area, meeting rooms for youth groups, the women’s association, and children’s workshops, and a larger space for communal celebrations.

 

 

 

Renovate the community hall in Brassó

BrassoThe Family Support Center in Brassó is a central hub for neighboring villages, a place to celebrate culture and pass on traditions. After 35 years of use, the Center’s main hall desperately needs renovation. The floor is sloping dangerously; walls need re-plastering; and tables and chairs have deteriorated. The greater community will work together to restore this room, which serves a vital common purpose.
