LITURGY PLANNING MEETING

The meeting to plan February liturgies will be held on Thursday, January 17, 9:30, at the Riverwalk Community Room. Please join us! It's our combined ideas that create such meaningful liturgies! And it's fun!

And let Joanne or anyone on the liturgy committee know if you’d like to present a homily.  All in CLS would love to hear your stories, your ideas, or your insights on favorite topics.  Let us know, too, if you have an idea for an guest homilist.


Once Again, A Wonderful CLS Christmas Eve Liturgy!

Many thanks to all who helped make our Christmas Eve liturgy a truly beautiful celebration! Thanks to Salem United Methodist Church for once again providing the lovely setting, to Rev. Katherine Zakutansky for her welcoming words and thoughtful homily, to Bonnie Birk for orchestrating the music, to Meg Kasprowicz for her great work as piano accompanist, and to the talented choir. The core choir of Meg, Bonnie, Gail Dustin, Bill Schuster, Joanne Riordan, and Julie Vogelsang was nicely augmented on Christmas Eve by Barb Schuster, Bridget Moran (Bonnie’s granddaughter), Julian and Alexandra Pozniak (Marilyn and Gene Baus's grandchildren), and Gail Bennett, her friend Don, and her son Jacob (Alice Foley’s daughter and grandson). 

Very special thanks and appreciation to those who provided the evening’s lovely solo music – Jacob Bennett, Bridget Moran, and Dylan Baus (Marilyn and Gene's grandson). All were wonderful and added so much to the occasion!! 

Thanks, too, to Linda Vincent and Marilyn Baus for ensuring that all was organized and running smoothly. And last but certainly not least thanks to all those who attended the liturgy!  It was so good to see so many friends and family members!!

THE FUNDRAISER FOR SOPHIA’S DAVE HELLING SCHOLARSHIP FUND WAS A BIG SUCCESS!

Many thanks to everyone who contributed money to CLS for SOPHIA’s newly created Dave Helling Scholarship Fund for leadership training! The fundraiser CLS organized to provide start-up money for the fund was a great success. Twenty-four people gathered for brunch on September 9th at Laraine and Mike O’Brien’s beautiful home, visiting and enjoying the lovely day. We all greatly appreciated Laraine and Mike’s gracious hospitality, and appreciated, too, the delicious food provided by CLS people! The amount raised at the event, along with checks from people who couldn’t be there, was close to $1,500.00!
