Two special notes regarding the BC Region Gathering! Join us for a time to share some music and connections with fellow UUs across the province. Our special musician guest will be Nancy Dobbs. We will be honoring the theme of: Change is Nature and have a unique reflection video prepared especially for us by ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet.

ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet has been a UU since before they knew what UU was! They have served Westwood Unitarian as Director of Religious Education since 2013, and shifted to adding Technical Support into their role when the pandemic began. ilara has loved how accessible our communities have become in response to Covid-19, and has greatly enjoyed connecting more deeply with UUs across the country as a result. They are very excited to introduce a couple of Westwood’s puppet friends to everyone across our National UU Community!
