Preserving the Present

as a Legacy for the Future


Imagine being able to write the first draft of history!  Please send us your stories for the archive we're creating to document the current life of All Souls.  Selected contributions (with contributors' permission) will be posted in the Community Stories section of this website. Our aim is to capture the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the uprising against racial injustice on our community.  For more details, see Preserving the Present as a Legacy for the FuturePlease send your contributions to us at archives@allsoulsnyc.org.  ​Thank you!

Honor the Past,
Celebrate the Present,
Shape the Future

The Unitarian Church of All Souls NYC was founded on November 15th, 1819.  From its humble beginnings in a downtown parlor to its rise as a flagship of Unitarian Universalism, it has been a beacon for liberal religious thinking for more than two centuries. 


This website was created as a place to find out about, and share memories of, the history of our church.
