Rev. Alice leaves on April 11 for a two month sabbatical pilgrimage on El Camino de Santiago in Spain. Together with her daughter, she will walk 490 kilometers (304 miles) from Burgos to Santiago. She returns to the US on June 9 and will join us for worship and our All-Church Birthday celebration on June 11, although she expects she might be a bit jet lagged. You can follow her journey on Facebook by friending her at Rev Alice Anacheka-Nasemann. While she is away, the Rev. Sam Teitel will be our sabbatical pastoral care minister. You can meet him on Easter Sunday, 4/16, when he will lead the service with our Director of Lifelong Learning, Roberta Altamari.
