Welcome to The First Religious Society in Carlisle

Welcome! We are a Unitarian Universalist Church, a Welcoming Congregation, located across from the Common in the center of Carlisle, Massachusetts. The First Religious Society is a place of worship and fellowship dedicated to serving the spiritual and religious needs of all who choose to walk with us. We are active in serving the community and reaching out globally to those in need. We invite you to our worship services and religious education classes at 10 o'clock on Sunday morning.

  Infinity Garden photos. Take a look at the flowers that bloom in the garden. The Memorial Garden is a place of commemoration and beauty. It adjoins the larger Infinity Garden area on the church grounds. The central feature is the Memorial Sculpture which was created from a single granite boulder. The names of persons whose lives are associated with the First Religious Society are carved into the flat surfaces of the stones. Surrounding the stones is a grassy area, a defined space dedicated to remembrance of life. For information about adding a name to the Memorial Sculpture, contact the church office.
