** Many thanks to Alice Cialella for serving as lead technical host this morning, to George Johnson for serving as technical co-host and to Chris Lewis for serving as technical adviser. Without the generous gift of their time and support this service would not have been possible.


The Service Will be Followed by Coffee Hour on Zoom! 

  • Breakout rooms of 6-8 will be randomly assigned to all who would like to participate. We’ll do rounds of 10 minutes each. It’s a great way to get to know folks you otherwise might not get a chance to talk to!
