Celebrating Our Legacy: Deadline May 28!

Event details

  • Sunday | May 28, 2017
  • All Day

On May 7, 2017, the members of the congregation gathered to consider how we might honor the estate gifts from Ann Roschinsky and Frank MacArtor, and how we might celebrate their (and our) legacy. Working with a proposal from the Board of Trustees and the Finance Committee, the congregation voted unanimously to reserve $25,000 of these gifts for specific projects honoring Frank and Ann. $209,000 is to be used as a pay-down of the mortgage debt.

During that meeting, the congregation was also invited to participate in the Celebrating Our Legacy campaign, offering their financial commitments to the debt reduction.


Frank MacArtor and Ann Roschinsky came to UUSMC for different reasons, with different passions and commitments, from different places in their lives. Here, in their own ways, they created space for each of us to love as fiercely as they did, to give generously of our hearts, to grow our own souls.

In honor of Frank and of Ann, and all those who have come before us, whose generous spirits have created this sacred place of acceptance where all who come in peace and with open hearts are welcome, we invite you to join us in participating in this Celebrating Our Legacy campaign.

We have commitments of over $58,000 from twenty-two families. Our goal is to have 100% participation from all of our members and friends.

You are invited to make a commitment to this campaign ​in any amount to be paid over the next three years (2017, 2018, 2019).

Let us all become part of the Legacy that holds us now. Let us all become part of the Legacy that holds the future of this congregation.​
