Love is the spirit of this church
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek the truth in freedom,
To tell the truth with responsibility,
And to help one another,
This is our covenant.
A Welcoming Congregation
The Welcoming Congregation Committee and program at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula were formed in the early spring of 2001. The program is dedicated to creating, fostering, and maintaining awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) issues as they relate to our Church’s members and potential members. On June 10, 2001, the congregation voted unanimously to become a Welcoming Congregation. We at UUCSP have for years performed Union ceremonies and incorporated LGBT people in all aspects of church life.
Mary A. Livermore Society
Established in the late 19th Century, the Mary A. Livermore Society has held meetings for over 100 years and is the longest standing women's society in Ventura County. The members meet on a monthly basis to listen to the stories of their fellow members. The "Mary A's" continue to support causes that include end-of-life issues, reproductive rights, and other women's issues in the spirit of Mary A. Livermore who worked for women's education as well as abolition and temperance.
