Welcome to the Dorothea Dix Unitarian Universalist Community
We join together, in the liberal tradition of Unitarian Universalism, to celebrate and encourage one another in the free search for individual belief. Our collective cultural and religious diversity unites and sustains us as we travel the path on our individual spiritual journey. Women, men, and children; persons of any color, culture, age, ability, economic status, or sexual orientation; skeptics and those pursuing diverse religious paths – all are welcome to join us in this celebration.
Who Are We?
We are a small congregation with dreams of growing. We are old and we are young. We come from many different faith traditions and walks in life. Our faith is based on the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism and grounded in reason and conscience and the value of every individual. We share a strong commitment to serve our community through social action and service. We are located in Bordentown, NJ , which is in Northern Burlington County, and we also draw from the City of Trenton as well as various nearby suburban and rural areas. A shared spirit of community binds us together in fellowship and faith. We invite you to visit, ask questions, share ideas, and grow with us.
We provide or participate in many activities, such as book discussions, small spirituality discussion groups, and numerous social action tasks. We have dinner discussion groups throughout the year, and a theme dinner once a year. Over the summer our members host picnics. Once a month, DDUUC prepares and delivers meals to the homeless housed in two local motels. At Christmas, we prepare approximately 20 food baskets to provide Christmas dinners to needy families. Many of our members participate in the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) by preparing meals and tutoring. We always strive to live up to the Seven Principles of our denomination.
