Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson


logoThe 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.

The voting is over! A winner has been chosen! The winning entry in the SAZCUUPS Logo Contest was created by member Jezi Hayhoe. We asked all entrants to tell us about their inspirations. Here’s Jezi’s answer:

"The mountains and cactus are traced from a photo I took so they're our mountains and the chalice is on the UUA free chalice clip art page free for any UU associated group to use…My inspiration is I SAZCUUPS. Uniquely us, versatile and inclusive to diversity within UU and Pagan beliefs yet simple and true. I chose sunset colours because the shadow cactus and mountains made more sense to me during sunrise or sunset."

Please join us in congratulating Jezi and thanking all of our entrants for their high quality submissions. You can see our new logo at the top of this webpage.
