Holy Week & Easter at First Parish

Join us for one of our offerings during Holy Week!  Come sit in quiet reflection on Good Friday, and on Sunday watch our joyous Easter service and then come down to First Parish for an Outdoor Easter Social and Easter Egg Hunt!

Join us as we celebrate the rebirth of life – and hope – during this season of spring!


Friday, April 2nd – Good Friday – Quiet Drop-in Space

The Sears Chapel will be open for quiet reflection and prayer with candlelight and music playing softly. The doors will be open to the chapel to allow for people to come and go.

Download a PDF of the order of service to follow along during the service, read lyrics or prayers, and catch up on announcements. Our in-person services typically start at 10:30 AM, so hit “play” on the recording at 10:15 AM to enjoy our extended musical preludes.

We invite you to sit back, take a deep breath, and join with us in a time of inspiration and celebration.


Outdoor Easter Social & Easter Egg Hunt!
Sunday, April 4th – 11:45 AM 

First Parish Church in Weston — 349 Boston Post Road

 

Once folks have finished watching the pre-recorded service, everyone is invited to join your neighbors and friends at First Parish for an outdoor, socially-distanced (but finally back in-person!) gathering on the lawn and upper driveway at the church. The weather looks sunny, we will have coffee & muffins, and there will be some music playing on our sound system. (We may even roll out the ping pong table if there’s interest!)

In addition to coffee and friendly conversation, chocolate-lovers (of every age and ability!) are invited to come down for a traditional Easter Egg hunt! There will be eggs scattered throughout the playground behind the church for folks to discover and enjoy.


Virtual Easter Egg Hunt
the hunt begins
Saturday, April 3rd!

First Parish is one of the stops along this year’s UU Virtual Easter Egg Hunt! Can you track down the Easter Bunny’s prize?

Last year, Unitarian Universalist congregations collaborated to create a virtual Easter egg hunt where each congregation hid an Easter Egg somewhere on their website, and then the egg linked to another congregation’s website. Participants followed the eggs until they found a ‘prize page,’ full of Easter fun! First Parish is excited to be part of this year’s hunt (can you find our Easter egg?!). The hunt starts on Saturday, April 3rd, and will remain active throughout April.

Click the button to get to the main landing page; from there you choose whether you want to do the “Easy”  or “Difficult” egg hunt. For the “easy” egg hunt you simply follow the eggs you find on each webpage to the prize page at the end. For the “difficult” egg hunt, each egg links you to the congregation’s home page, and you need to search the entire website for the Easter egg with the next link. Both hunts will take you to the same prize page, so it doesn’t matter which you choose. Just have fun!
