Many years ago, several friends decided that there was a place for liberal religion on the south side of Chicago. They were members of relatively conservative religious denominations and were joined by some members of the Unitarian denomination in forming a fellowship that has endured more than sixty years. Thus was the beginning of All Souls Free Religious Fellowship.
Since the founding of the Fellowship, the organization has served members and friends without interruption. At one point, All Souls merged with First Universalist Society at 910 East 83rd Street. Later, All Souls reconstituted itself as a separate fellowship that included the members of the original All Souls and some members of First Universalist. From the beginning, All Souls has maintained allegiance to the concept of seeking truth and implementing justice whenever and wherever opportunity presents itself. All Souls is a
member of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Central Midwest District of the UUA.
The Congregation has reached out to the larger community through service projects which include support for Matthew House Community Shelter, Clara’s House Shelter for Women and Children, gifts to the troops in Iraq, contributions to families in Africa and support for college students. We extend an invitation to membership in All Souls to individuals who wish to make a commitment to the principles of the UUA.
