The arrival of a new child into a family and community is a special event, and many parents and guardians appreciate having a ritual that marks this singular time. Unitarian Universalist child dedications provide a way to celebrate the birth or adoption of a child and dedicate them to the larger community.

Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parents and the minister working closely together. Many will include the following elements:

  • A blessing for the new life of the child
  • An expression of the parent or parents’ hopes for the child
  • A promise by the congregation or those assembled to support and nurture the child
