Second Parish in Hingham

Unitarian Universalist


Upcoming Events

Men's Breakfast

Saturday, November 4, 8 am

All men of the parish are cordially invited to attend. We will continue our tradition of hearty breakfasts with some healthy foods included. Please email Lou Belknap at lsbelknap@gmail.com or call him at 781-749-5519 if you can attend. There is no agenda, but come prepared to discuss whatever is on your mind.


Dinners for Eight, November 5 and November 11

The dinner on November 5 is full, but another dinner is being planned for November 11. These dinners are a wonderful way to get to know church members and friends in an informal way, at a small cooperative dinner held at someone's home. If you would like to attend a dinner please sign up in Cushing Hall or email Jane Shute: shutehing@verizon.net.


Second Sunday Collection, November 12

The November collection will go Womanade, a local charity whose mission is to quietly and efficiently provide help to neighbors in need. Please give generously to this worthy local charity.


Paige Shetty Presentation, Friday, November 17, 7 pm

Paige will share her experience with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) in New Zealand in Cushing Hall.  Please plan to join us to hear about her adventures.


Hingham Food Pantry Produce Packing

Sunday November 19, after coffee hour

We will again be assisting the Food Pantry by organizing fresh produce for their Thanksgiving distribution. This is a great service activity for the young and the young-at-heart.  All are welcome to join us at 11:30 am.


Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service

Come celebrate Thanksgiving at Old Ship, Wednesday, November 22nd at 7:00 PM! Once again, the Hingham Hull Religious Leaders Association will sponsor an interfaith service to be led by a variety of Hingham and Hull religious leaders. The service is rich in traditions and music and seasonal good cheer. This year Jeremy Scott, of the North Street Community Church, will give the sermon.


Christmas Wreath Orders

Worship Services

November 5 - The Lost Hero Project

Christina O'Connor, Hingham High School history teacher, has devoted time to working with her students to capture the stories of Hingham residents who served in World War II. On this Sunday before Veterans Day, she will speak to us about the project, what she has learned, and what her students have learned.


November 12 - What Did You Do With That Hour?

So many of us love how shifting to Eastern Standard Time gives us an extra hour in the fall. But what do we do with that hour? Focusing on the gift of just one hour might open some possibilities for us in appreciating the time we have.


November 19 - Norman Rockwell on your Guest List

Norman Rockwell's painting “Freedom From Want" has for years been the iconic depiction of an American family holiday. The story of the original offers some unexpected truths about what it means to be "American." This sermon will consider some significant aspects of the painting and its history as we enter a week of thankfulness.


November 26 - Hometown Feast

In our regular service, we will be sharing stories about our hometowns in small groups of four or five people. Please think about a story or a custom or a personality from your hometown that you would like to share in this "Hometown Feast." Everyone will participate, whether by speaking in the small group or by listening.

Meet Our Minister,
Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
