As part of our ministry here at First Parish of Watertown, we celebrate many of the milestones of life’s journey:

For families with young children, we offer ceremonies of Child Dedication. In dedicating children of any age, we seek to affirm their inherent worth and dignity and to promise our support to them and to their families as they grow. These ceremonies typically are scheduled during one of our regular Sunday morning worship services.

For those seeking to be married, our minister is available to help plan and officiate at your ceremony, either in our building or in another location of your choosing.

The minister is also available to help plan and officiate at memorial services, funerals or graveside committal services upon the death of a loved one.

All of these ministerial services are provided gratis to members of First Parish of Watertown, and for a fee to non-members. Additional fees for use of the building may apply.

To request more information or to schedule a milestone event, please contact the minister directly by email at
