The Program for This Sunday

 

 

Ellen McManus , Caring Committee chair, speaks Sunday, August 3rd, on “My Life as a Nun.” Ellen will engagingly recount how her decision at age 13 to become a nun led her on a journey to a religious community and “a final profession.” Mixed with laughter and light mischief, she will share some sad, profound, and reflective moments.

 

 
Coming Events & Announcements
For a full list of all our programs, activities and announcements for this month, see our Newsletter page. 

 

  

• Our Second Saturday Coffeehouse, hosted by Vicki Elberfeld, returns on August 9th, at 8 p.m. We’ll enjoy a stirring performance by folksinger/songwriter Andrew Calhoun. Andrew writes with a paradoxical combination of incandescent intellect and unstudied magic. He is both a lightning rod for "the unconscious rightness of intuitive connection" and a perpetual student of songcraft with deep respect for both tradition and innovation. He will be joined by his daughter and singer/dancer Casey Calhoun. There will be no open mike. The $8 donation at the door includes refreshments.
