First News of EUU Retreat with UUA President

OCTOBER 29-31 2010

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Paris is happy to invite you to attend the Fall EUU Retreat in Alsace, France. We are privileged to have the Rev. Peter Morales, recently elected President of the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association – USA), as our theme speaker. Morales was elected on a platform of growth and multiculturalism. Public witness is central to his presidency; he is especially passionate about immigration reform and environmental justice.

An extraordinary theme speaker, a setting in the historic and beautiful Alsace region and the simple gifts of EUU-Retreat fellowship, fun and music are sure to enrich your lives. (EUU = European Unitarian Universalists)

Rev. Morales’ retreat theme, "Building a Religion Beyond Belief," will explore religion not as a set of beliefs but as what we love - including the role of religious community and the need to adapt to contexts. See (

All are welcome
EUU retreats are for people of all ages – we offer a full program for young people as well as adults.

The retreat will be in Mittelwihr, France (near Colmar) on the eastern side of the Vosges Mountains, along the Route des Vins d'Alsace (Wine Route). Nearby Riquewihr is a walled, well-preserved picturesque medieval market town. The province of Alsace is known for its typical wood framed houses, large black hats and regional specialties. As one of the regions of Europe welcoming to Renaissance humanists, it is a fitting setting for our retreat.
