Members of the congregation are hosting gatherings in their neighborhoods to get to know parishioners who are also neighbors. Gatherings are as simple as coffee nearby, or a potluck meal in someone’s home or building. The first gathering, held in June, was a lovely meal in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. Upcoming “In Your Neighborhood” gatherings include:
Staten Island: 3pm, Saturday, August 26, Summer backyard cook out
Greenwich Village: 4pm, Sunday, October 1, Tea, refreshments, and company into the evening
Jersey City: 7pm, Saturday, October 14
To attend, RSVP to Amiriz Sanchez at email@example.com. Don’t see your neighborhood? If you are interested in hosting or attending gatherings in other neighborhoods, contact Ellen Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
