First Sunday of Advent. No Religious Exploration.

Service of Remembrance

Please join us as we remember those who have passed over the course of the year. Let us remember how they have shaped our lives in ways we could not have imagined.

The Festival of Holi

Holi is the Hindu “Festival of Colors” (sometimes called the “Festival of Love”). It celebrates the arrival of spring and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.
