Child Welcome

A perfect way to welcome your new family member

A child welcome ceremony plays an important role for many families who consider themselves to be spiritual, but not religious. This ceremony is meant to celebrate the child, recognize their unique name, and officially recognize the responsibility of the parents, siblings, and community for the care and nurturing of the child all lifelong.

As Unitarians, we honour all faith and cultural traditions and are pleased to incorporate meaningful rituals into your service.

Many families do not have an association with a formal religion, but do find themselves wishing to mark the arrival of a newborn child or adoption with a meaningful celebration. We are pleased to assist all families in the Lower Mainland and surrounding communities with a unique child dedication ceremony.

What can you expect from us?

  • Ceremonies that reflect what is meaningful to you & your beliefs
  • Inclusive of diversity (Faith, culture, sexual orientation)
  • Compassionate & professional
  • Creative & helpful
