Religious Education News
Congratulations to our Youth and Adult volunteers who came out on Easter Weekend to be of service at a shelter in New York City. This annual event is organized by the good folks at First Congregational Church of Madison (on the green). We have worked with them on this and other projects in the past. We joined a group from First Parish (UU) from Sudbury, MA. The Youth Service Opportunities Project (YSOP) program is run out of the Quaker Meetinghouse on 15th St in Manhattan. A great experience for everyone!
