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. Chapter meetings and worship services are open to all people.
Mission: We 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.
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.

Pagan Tip of the Month
I like to use Imbolc as an opportunity to do some early spring cleaning, and cleansing my space of unwanted or old energy is no exception! You can do the same, if you desire.
Ring a bell in the corners of your home, smudge with local dried herbs, spritz some salt water, use your besom (or any broom) to sweep the dog hair and the stale energy out the front door, and say an incantation to your own house spirits!
As you're cleaning, be mindful to invite in what is welcome and block out what is not. And consider donating any clothing or items you don't need to a local shelter.
