Southern Arizona Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (SAZCUUPS)

(scroll down for event calendar)

The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) exists in part to promote the practice and understanding of Pagan and Earth-centered Spirituality within the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and to enable networking among Pagan-identified Unitarian Universalists.

The  Southern Arizona Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (SAZCUUPS) connects people in the Tucson region, including the “Baja 4” UU congregations in this area:

Mission: Connect and Celebrate

The mission of the Southern Arizona CUUPS chapter is to connect UUs and Pagans of many different faiths in an inclusive, welcoming space. We celebrate our Earth-based faith traditions in harmony with our UU principles.

Purpose

Southern Arizona CUUPS is an interfaith group sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson (UUCT).

We serve the UUCT community and the wider Southern Arizona and Tucson region by:

  1. holding regular public worship services / seasonal ritual celebrations,
  2. presenting educational sessions and study groups with an Earth-centered spiritual perspective, and
  3. donating financially to the UUCT.

We invite UUs to learn more about the basics of Paganism, and we invite Pagans to learn more about Unitarian Universalism.

SAZCUUPS Celebrations

SAZCUUPS celebrates the Celtic Wheel of the Year holy days and a few additional holidays.
