NOTE FROM FR. JOHN: For the past 100 years Neighborhood House has been serving the villages of Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and the surrounding community. It is a small, independent non-profit organization. The mission is to offer older adults the opportunity to maintain a healthy life style, to pursue life-long learning and enjoy socialization across ethnic, intergenerational and economic lines. As part of its mission, Neighborhood House does not charge participants for classes or programs. In thanksgiving for our 125 years of faith-oriented service to our surrounding communities, we make a $10,000 gift to Neighborhood House. Our next bulletin will provide a profile of another worthy organization.
BIBLE STUDY AT THE MAGDALENE resumes on Ash Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall. Our study of Biblical Women continues as we look at women leaders and victims in the Old Testament. We will move on to studying New Testament women: the women of expectant faith; the women who meet Jesus and the impact of those encounters; and those who are leaders in the early church. All are welcome!
