Dear SHOUT OUT Team Members,

Brrr… things are chilly across Alberta this week. Which means virtual attendance is ideal! We have a variety of at-home (on zoom) retreats and programs coming up. This has been an exciting year of developing new ways to connect as our Kuriakos Community and we’d be thrilled to see you (and your congregation members) at an event this spring. All programs are offered free of charge, with a suggested donation of $50 to Kuriakos.

Please share the following information with your congregation. Either as announcements, slides, posters, bulletin inserts... It’s all provided in the newsletter and SHOUT OUT folder!
