Now in its 272nd year, First Parish Universalist Church is a liberal religious congregation that has evolved out of a fascinating religious history. First Parish Universalist Church is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association.


After a yearlong ministerial search, on May 22, 2016, First Parish held a special business meeting and the congregation unanimously voted to call Rev. Sarah Napoline as its new settled minister, an invitation Rev. Napoline happily accepted.

We invite members and friends of First Parish to “meet” Rev. Sarah by exploring her website. You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter. We are excited to see what the future will bring!
