Frequently Asked Questions

What’s an installation?

This is a special service where a minister is “installed” as the new minister of the congregation. It includes elements you might find in a typical Unitarian Universalist Worship service – a sermon, hymns, and readings – as well as some additional ritual elements to help set an intention for the new ministry partnership.


How should I dress?

Clergy should bring robes (if they come from a tradition that wears them) and religious leaders from all traditions are invited at 3:30pm to be a part of the processional.


Is the service really three hours?

No, the service will likely no longer than an hour and a half. The remainder of the event time will be the reception.


What food will be at the reception?

Light appetizers. There will be no dinner at the reception.


Is parking available? What about public transportation?

Parking is available in the lot next door between the church and the school, as well as on the street. The church is also less than five minutes by foot from the Malden Center T Stop.
