The CUC is delighted to share with you the news that four congregations submitted project nominations for this first-ever CUC Shining Lights Award. This award highlights excellent and successful initiatives and programming by Canadian Unitarian Universalist communities.

All of these projects are inspiring nominations worthy of careful review. In the words of one of the Shining LIghts Team members, Lynn Sabourin, “We agonized over the decision.” The winning entry will be announced at the National Conference during the Sunday Banquet, May 20.

Two of the four nominees will be presenting workshops during the CUC National Conference. See the workshop information which indicates the Shining Lights Award Nominees.

In addition to these two workshops, all four nominees will have the opportunity to share their stories in upcoming eNews issues. Explore the June & July eNews regarding a two-part piece presented by the award winners. In August, September and October, the remaining three nominees will share their project information.

REMINDER: 2019 is coming!

These four congregational project nominees for the 2018 Shining Lights Award are wonderful and inspiring! More Canadian Unitarian Universalist congregations and groups are invited to apply for 2019. You are invited to share your story so that others may be inspired, and great projects may network and grow. Have an idea to share? Contact us at:
