New Website

Dear Colleagues and Friends of ICUU,
The new ICUU website is nearly ready and is due to go live this month. We are looking for a few "testers" to look at the new site and help us with fine-tuning. If this interests you, please contrtact Steve Dick at as soon as possible.

We are also looking for people to help update and write new text.

The first public preview of the new site was at the Online Council Meeting this month. Another good reason to attend that online meeting.

Kind Regards,
Rev. Dávid Gyerő
President, International Council of Unitarians and Universalists
Deputy Bishop, Hungarian Unitarian Church


ICUU is seeking chalice lighting words to be considered for publication in the GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS series.

Submissions should be original or adapted words designed for use when lighting a chalice in the context of worship. The author must be a member of an ICUU Member Group or of an Emerging Group recognized by ICUU. Submission in a local language in addition to English is welcomed, particularly when English is not the native language.

Please note it is not possible to promise that submitted words can be used in a particular month or that any submission will be included in the series. A number of factors are considered when considered which words will be selected and when they will be used.

Submissions can be sent to ICUU GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS Coordinator Steve Dick at

We look forward to receiving GLOBAL CHALICE LIGHTING WORDS from around the world and thank you for your assistance.

Rev. Dávid Gyerő
