Dear SHOUT OUT Team Members,

 
As we approach the end of the year, we’d like to celebrate with you and plan for next summer. For a special souvenir of our 90th Anniversary, consider a gift of our new book “The Many Graces of Kuriakos”. This book records many of the table graces, stories, and memories that form part of our life together.

As well, drop by for some Carolling on December 26!

Thanks for your work supporting our communication efforts this year. You make a big difference in continuing Kuriakos’s partnership with congregations.

Blessings and Merry Christmas,

Paul Kopjar
Assistant Director
