As a liberal religious
congregation, the Unitarian Fellowship of Fredericton believes
everyone should have access to the benefits of ceremonies marking
important milestones in their lives. Since freedom is a basic
principle underlying the beliefs and practices of Unitarians, we
encourage the creation of ceremonies that will be as meaningful as
possible to the individual or individuals involved.
