The Unitarian Universalist Retired Ministers and Partners Association serves the UUA and its congregations by working alongside the UUA staff and leaders of other UU organizations, especially the Council on Church Staff Finances, the UUMA, and other policy-making groups. UURMaPA supports retired UU ministers and their life partners, and the surviving partners of deceased UU ministers, all of whom are people who continue to pour their special energies into our local churches and the cause of liberal religion. Our Caring Network, comprised of more than forty people throughout the continent, maintains regular contact with all 850 UURMaPA members, especially those in particular need. We hold three regional conferences per year to provide connection and intellectual stimulation. We publish both a directory of members and a quarterly newsletter, Elderberries.
