The Reverend Kathy McAdams, Ecclesia Ministries, to Preach, Lead Adult Forum on Sunday, May 18
By way of background, McAdams writes:
“We very much enjoyed having groups from your congregation visit Common Cathedral last April. It is relationships with congregations like yours that help us continue our vital ministry with the poorest people of Boston. We hope that your visits were valuable to your Confirmation or Outreach program, or simply to raise the consciousness and compassion of your congregation about the many and complex causes of homelessness. [It is my hope that we] strengthen this partnership begun by our two congregations, and continue Ecclesia’s many programs for people experiencing homelessness, as well as our educational/formational offerings to housed congregations.”
Junior Choir Step-up Sunday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. service; Babson Night program at 6:00 p.m. Babson Night is an annual program for religious institutions in the Wellesley area. The Grace Night Babson Fund for Religious Education sponsors this program which is held at the Knight Auditorium at Babson College. Young people representing the churches and temples in the area each give a brief presentation (song, skit or story) that is based on a Scripture text. The program begins and ends with hymns accompanied by the large Wurlitzer theater organ housed in the auditorium. Institutions receive a monetary gift from the Babson Fund for their participation. Everyone is welcome to attend.
