Our Fellowship

The Unitarian Fellowship of Regina was initiated in 1954 when several people met in Regina with Lotta Hitchmanova of the international Unitarian Service Committee. In 1955, the Fellowship was officially accepted into the Unitarian Universalist Association, the North American resource organization, at that time based in Boston.

Unitarian Universalists World-wide

Unitarianism originated in Europe … possibly as early as 1568 with an edict on religious tolerance by King John Sigismund in mountainous Transylvania. Other groups emerged in Poland and London, England. By the late 1700s, Unitarian groups also had evolved in North America in several locations.

Unitarian Universalist Association provides online resources that benefit Unitarians across North America. The UUA also supports congregations in their work by training ministers, publishing books and the UU World magazine, providing religious education curricula, offering shared services, coordinating social justice activities, and more, including action with the United Nations.
