Who we are

Capital Unitarian Universalist Congregation is a vibrant lay-led UU community in the James Bay neighbourhood of Victoria, BC, Canada.

We welcome you, whoever you are, whatever religious belief, tradition, gender, race, sexual orientation or age you represent.  We hope that our time together will enhance in all of us a feeling of fellowship and love, help us maintain peace of mind, and bring wisdom and the joy of caring and sharing.

Our mission is to build an inclusive, evolving, liberal religious community which offers a safe, supportive, stimulating environment to those who feel the need for spiritual growth.  Many of us enjoy discussing the moral philosophical issues of the day!

Rosemary Morrison “Connection: We’re All in this Together”
Jun 5 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

It is through connection that we can learn to be our best selves. Alternately, a lack of connection can lead to depression and difficulties. Looking through the eyes of sages and scholars, this service will explore connection to help us understand connection more fully and to help us connect deeply and with intention.

Rosemary has been a member of Capital for six years. She was very active in the leadership of this congregation until she moved to Vancouver to attend school. She will be entering her third and final year of a Master of Divinity program at Vancouver School of Theology next fall. She is a Candidate for Ministry with the Unitarian Universalist Association. Rosemary lives in Vancouver and is the proud parent of two amazing adults.
