At St. John's

Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John's. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and "prayer of the heart," an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.

First Benefit Recital for 2018: Over 60 people braved the driving rain to hear Peter Broderick's outstanding performance on January 23 for the first 2018 Food Pantry Recital.  Peter is an exceptional musician, composer and arranger. Peter played and sang pieces on the piano, guitar and violin and bathed us with his warmth, humor and graciousness.   Peter's sang several songs by Arthur Russell, who was Kate Russell Henry's brother and Tom Lee's partner. Arthur died in 1992 from AIDS. For his last song, Peter was accompanied by Kate's son, percussionist, Beau Lisy. Following the performance, Kate, Tom and their family and friends hosted a lovely reception in the undercroft. This was a very special evening. And $842 was donated for our food pantry!  We are very grateful.
