For Parents

“What’s my role?”

Come regularly. Join in! Be a part of our community. One of the most important ways to encourage religious and spiritual development in children and youth is to participate consistently in the life of the congregation. By coming regularly, your children will create friendships that will bond them to the community. And so will you. Continuity ensures that children get a deeper understanding of the curriculum and build trusting relationships with our dedicated teachers. Consistent attendance makes the CRE experience richer for all.

We also want parents to join in the life of our community at USSB. Attend worship and events to become involved in the congregation. Then, once you have a sense of belonging, please get involved in the CRE program in a way that suits your time and talents.

Parent Circle: a monthly parent peer support group

First Wednesday of the month on Zoom from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Contact our Director of Religious Exploration, Charla Bregante, at for information and the Zoom link.

“There’s no such thing as a perfect parent. So just be a real one.”

− Sue Atkins

Parent Circle is a place where RE parents can get to know each other, support each other, and share ideas about what it means to raise children in a Unitarian Universalist framework in an ever changing and complicated world.

Consider other adult religious education opportunities to help you explore and articulate your own beliefs.
