Episcopal City Mission promotes and works for affordable housing and supports creative responses to poverty and injustice in the Boston area. Join members of CGS at the Annual Fundraising Dinner for this great organization on Tuesday, June 4, at 6 pm, at Boston University. The Keynote Address will be given by the Rt. Rev. George Packard, former Bishop of the Armed Services and Federal Ministries, and Occupy Wall Street activist. For more info, email email@example.com.
Pastoral Response Team:
Every Tuesday from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm in the parish office, starting May 28th. Join with Pastor
Amy for noonday prayer and share with her in strengthening our response to
challenges, crises, celebrations, and changes in our CGS community and beyond.
Each week's work will differ, but might include sending birthday cards,
delivering flowers, calling someone who visited the parish for the first time,
or representing CGS at a civic event. Come as often as you are able. Those who
are at work will be welcome to join in via conference call (we'll publish info
on how to do that ahead of time).
to 5K Walking/Running Program: By following a simple, progressive program, even if you are not
currently active, you will be able to run or walk 5K (3.1 miles) in 8 weeks. After
an intro meeting covering all the important basics about safety and equipment,
we meet each following Sunday, rain or shine, to talk
about your previous week's progress and have a group run or walk from
CGS. After 8 weeks, we will run or walk the 5K loop from Watertown Square
around the Charles River, with refreshments and snacks at the finish, and maybe
even a t-shirt. Our warden, Rob Flynn, is a USAT&F certified coach,
and been training and competing in every distance from the 800 meter to the
marathon since 1975, will be sharing his wealth of experience. By his own
admission, he's done everything wrong at least once, so you don't have to. If you're interested in
participating, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Starts in early July.
School, August 5 -9. A week of learning, fun, and celebration for children ages 4 through 12. Children learn about soil, seed, animals, water, and harvest, and start to claim their role as stewards of creation. Younger children are with us in the mornings; older children stay through lunch and have a field trip in the afternoon. Registration is now open to all. We have space for 26 children, and they are already filling! Registration forms are in the narthex (the little room through which
one enters the sanctuary) or by emailing email@example.com.
