The translation project, Exploration de notre foi unitarienne universaliste en français, began five years ago with a grant from the West Trust Trustees in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The goal was to provide high-quality literature for Franco-Canadians interested and curious about Unitarian Universalism.
A small group of people at UUFO dedicated themselves to selecting material, arranging permission for translation and publication, and engaging a translator. The project leaders recognized that it has been a challenge for Francophones to find relevant material about our denomination: our movement’s history, our practices and our liberal faith.
Project leaders included Dale Falkenhagen, who was UUFO President at the beginning and has followed the project throughout, Lucie-Marie Castonguay-Bower, Rev. Frances Deverell and Maurice and Danielle Cabana-Proulx.
CUC is grateful to UUFO for this outstanding project.
