Universal Brotherhood Spiritualist Church

 486 East Columbia Street • New Westminster, B C •  V3L 3X5

The Western Spiritualist Church of Universal Brotherhood (UBSC) was founded in March, 1981, by Reverend Mary Hietanen, a well-known and respected medium.  Sometimes known as The Universal Brotherhood Spiritualist Church, UBSC recognizes the Seven Principles of Spiritualism as presented through the mediumship of Emma Hardinge Britten (1823--1899) in a message from the spirit of social activist Robert Owen (1771--1858). 

  1. The fatherhood of God

  2. The brotherhood of man

  3. Communion of spirits and the ministry of angels

  4. The continuous existence of the human soul

  5. Personal responsibility

  6. Compensation and retribution for all the good and evil deeds done on earth

  7. Eternal progress open to every (human) soul

UBSC has the authority to train and ordain Spiritualist ministers and to award certificates of spiritual healing.  UBSC ministers are registered in British Columbia to perform marriages. Other services, including unions, namings, memorials, funerals, and dedications, are held upon request.   Healing, counselling, and private readings are also available by appointment with any of our ministers
