Annual Bridging Ceremony

The UU Bridging Ceremony celebrates the transition of our youth from their high school experience into young adulthood.

One of the most important things we can do for our youth is to support their transition into adulthood, to keep them connected to Unitarian Universalism, and continue to minister to them as they become adults.

We use the term “bridging” to refer both to the ritual used to honor this transition and the process of leaving youth community and finding one’s place in young adult community. UUs of all ages can support young people making this transition by increasing our capacity for multigenerational ministry and reaching out to emerging adults.
