Every year, the Canadian Unitarian Universalist Historical Society (CUUHS) fulfills the main plank of its mandate by offering a lecture on some aspect of Canadian UU history. The Society has presented 35 lectures to date, dealing with topics such as Universalist heritage, Icelandic Unitarian heritage, and past Executive Directors of the Canadian Unitarian Council reflecting on their tenures.

This year, the lecture will be “Mark Mosher DeWolfe of Canada: The Eulogy I Never Gave”, presented by Rev. Dr. Mark Belletini, Minister Emeritus,  First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, Ohio.

The lecture will be held at the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto, 175 St Clair West on October 22, 4 p.m. Eastern, and will also be livestreamed at http://www.FirstUnitarianToronto.org/live (please note that this has changed from the original link).
