Welcoming Congregation


The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples (UUCGN) is a Welcoming Congregation.


UUCGN is open to people of all races, sexual orientations, and cultural and religious backgrounds, each member respecting the rights of others.


On March 21, 2001, UUCGN was officially designated as a Welcoming Congregation by a vote of its membership.  In doing so, it declares itself publicly as welcoming to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons at every level of congregational life – in worship, in programs, and in special occasions.



We also are part of Standing on the Side of Love, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) program explained as follows:


“Unitarian Universalists (UUs) affirm unconditional, universal love as a foundation and grounding for our actions in the world. We strive to be of service to our communities and advocate for change on local, state, national, and international levels.


Through our Standing on the Side of Love campaign, we amplify the voices of the oppressed through online media; we show up in partnership at justice events across the country; we lobby national leaders on immigration reform, racial justice, equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, religious freedom, and more; and above all we work to make love real in the world.”
