This year marks the 95th Anniversary of the Flower Communion tradition. To commemorate this anniversary, the Prague Unitarian Church has invited UU congregations around the world to join in the celebration on Sunday, June 4. Join us and bring a flower to share!
The Flower Communion was first celebrated in Prague on June 4, 1923 by Norbert Čapek, who was also the founder of the Unitarian Church in Czechoslovakia. He saw the need to unite the diverse congregants of his church, from varying Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish backgrounds, through honoring the universal beauty of nature. His wife, Rev. Maja Čapek, brought the ritual to the United States in 1940.
