Unitarian Church of Staten Island
Rev. Susan Karlson
312 Fillmore Street
Staten Island, NY, 10301


We are a Welcoming Congregation that is friendly, supportive and inclusive of LGBTQ people. The Rev. Susan Karlson, previously joined other Unitarian Universalist clergy in refusing to sign civil marriage certificates until marriage equality passed, while still performing religious ceremonies for everyone. We are thrilled that there is now a law that stands on the side of love in supporting all those who wish to make a commitment to love and cherish one another.
