UUCM in the News

UUCM travel team knows the importance of time should never be under estimated

A travel team from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead was prepared as ever to deliver aid and attention to a remote village in Guatemala. What it wasn’t prepared for was the impact the trip would have on them.

“I went thinking I would do some good,” said Nancy DeMuth. “I came away realizing it was a gift for us.”

The Guatemala Travel team was formed after Jean Hamburg gave a presentation on her trip there to meet with the child she sponsors. Comprised of seven UUCM members, including Hamburg, DeMuth and Patricia Sullivan, along with a nurse from Newburyport and Hamburg’s cousin and her adult daughter from Kansas City.

The group was there for seven days, visited two different organizations and brought home memories that will last a lifetime.

UUCM invites women, girls and femme-identifying sibling to gather Saturday

Over a decade ago, Tarana Burke started a movement to help support young Women of Color who had experienced sexual assault, harassment, and exploitation. She used the hashtag “metoo.” Today, the #metoo campaign has spread to women all over the country and world as woman and girls post the words “me too” on social media, claiming their place in a club nobody wants to join. On Saturday, November 4th at 5 pm, the UU congregation is opening its doors for the same reason.

They came together, holding flickering candles, to mourn the victims of America’s latest mass shooting and to hope for an end to gun violence.

“It’s one of those times when you really want to be in community, to be around love and positive energy,” said Renee Keaney of Marblehead. “I’m still very sad, but I’m glad I came.”


The Marblehead Ministerial Association, a group of local clergy, led a candlelight vigil Wednesday at St. Stephen’s Church for the victims of the Las Vegas massacre.

Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead will hold a showing of “Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible” Saturday, Oct. 7 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the UUCM church, 28 Mugford St.

The video offers everyone an entry into the difficult conversation about race. The film and conversation guide aims to help bridge the gap between good intentions and meaningful change.

For the El Amor of Guatemala: UUCM Travel Team to bring aide and expertise to San Lucas children’s home

A desire to meet the children she sponsors led Marbleheader Jean Hamburg to Guatemala in 2016 and a desire to do more for the people she met there has led to a second trip planned for October. This time, however, Hamburg is bringing nine friends with her each with a particular expertise and huge heart.

After her first trip, Hamburg said she made two presentations at her church, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead.

And a child shall lead them.

Under a bright Sunday sky, a barefoot, seven-year old Erin Clark led a group of clergy members down Mugford and Elm Streets, as she carried the Marblehead Covenant to its home for the next year.

“The Covenant is given to each house of worship on a rotating basis,” explained Christine Holbrook of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, which will host the Covenant for the next 12 months. “It’s a reminder that we all need to respect and honor one another’s point of view.”

Clark, along with Rev. Wendy von Courter, delivered the Covenant from the Unitarian Universalist Church, where it spent the last year.
