Child Dedications are ceremonies of commitment among adult caregivers, a child or children, and a congregation. Families work with the minister to craft a service that, grounded in Unitarian and Universalist tradition, reflects the family’s cultural and religious identity. Child Dedications typically include
- A blessing for the life of the child
- An expression of the parents’ and other caregivers (e.g. grandparents, or godparents) hopes and dreams for the child.
- A promise from the congregation to support the child in their development and faith formation
