A message from our minister, Rev. Catherine Cullen

Welcome!

Catherine-Cullen-webFirst Parish Church is a dynamic religious community serving Duxbury, Marshfield, Pembroke and surrounding towns. Our doors are open to people of all cultural, racial and religious backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations. We firmly believe in the inherent dignity and worth of every person.

At First Parish, we won't tell you what to believe. We affirm the individual's own free and responsible search for truth and meaning, understanding that each person's lifelong spiritual journey is along a unique path. And we know the holy can be found in nature as readily as in a sacred text.

But we also believe we are better together. We know that when our spirits cool and our fire begins to dim, we can rekindle the flame of commitment in the warmth of loving friends and spiritual companions. Ours is a church where we make connections deep enough to feel like family. Come, check us out.

Catherine
