Helping Hearts Committee will be meeting next Sunday the 19th of February from 12:15 to 1:15 after the Sunday Service.  If you would like to learn more about this committee, please feel free to join us next week.  We will most likely be gathering in the Sunday School room.

The Center Representatives Conference will be held on Wednesday during Convocation this year, instead of the Saturday preceding Convocation.  All are welcome to attend this event.  Please see the 1-page printout on the bulletin board for more information.

Next week, Saturday Feb 18th, we will hold a One-Day Retreat here at the Center from 10am – 4pm.  The retreat will include group Energization Exercises, readings from Master’s teachings, periods of group meditation & chanting, and free time.  If you wish, please bring a sack lunch to eat during the lunch break.

Please stay around briefly after the Service to allow the Sunday School children to join us in the chapel and present a token of thank you to our monastic visitors.  Then we will go out into the courtyard near the sundial for a group photo.  After the photo, please join us in the social room for our potluck and fellowship.

At 1pm Brother Devananda will conduct a wedding ceremony for our members Susanne Ashland and Brian Johnson.  All are invited and encouraged to attend the wedding.

(Note: at Bro. Devananda’s request, our Center Coordinator Jeremy Jones gave a summary to the congregation about our Center’s management structure and decision making as guided by the bylaws, and why we incorporated and adopted the bylaws.)
