Blessing of the Bicycles

bicycleUCM will inaugurate a new tradition on Sunday, May 8: the Blessing of the Bicycles! May is the start of UCM’s 5th annual Bike/Walk to Church Month and the beginning of bicycling season for many Vermonters. We’re very fortunate to have Rev. Joan bestow a blessing upon our two-wheeled, human-powered conveyances! Please bring your bike to church on May 8 to have it blessed after the service.

May is “Walk/Bike to Church Month.” You’re encouraged to walk or bike to church (all or part of the way) in May. Participation in this annual UCM initiative has grown each year. Let’s break last year’s record of 67 people! If you can’t walk or bike, please consider car pooling. We’ll reduce our carbon footprint and live into our mission as a Green Sanctuary. Please look for a sign-in sheet on the SPUDS table in the vestry during coffee hour.
