Feel free to bring your tea/coffee and a snack.

The Faith Examined Group meets every other Monday morning from 10:00-11:15 a.m. at the Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, 4 Palmer Street, Plattsburgh, with the first 15 minutes being “social time.” 

2022-2023 dates:

  • December 5 & 19
  • January 2, 16, & 30
  • February 13 & 27
  • March 13 & 27
  • April 10 & 24

We are excited to finally be able to meet in person, however, we have to take a couple of easy steps to be able to participate in person:

  1. Click on rsvp app to save your spot from session to session. We just need to RSVP to the sessions we plan to attend. Thanks for being willing to use the Fellowship’s RSVP system so we can meet in person!
  2. You’ll also need to upload your COVID vaccination record the first time – if you haven’t already (one-time only-or contact Jo Ellen Miano who will assist you).
Participants can still “call in” and utilize speaker phone function if needed.
