We will have very special guest speakers on Sunday, including First Parishioner Ray LaFrance, Dr. Kaia Stern, and Carla “Pony” Holmstrom. Mr. LaFrance is board chairman of Partakers, Inc.; Dr. Stern is Director of the Prison Studies Project and visiting faculty in the Department of Sociology at Harvard University, and Ms. Holmstrom, formerly incarcerated at MCI Framingham, took college courses through Boston University while in prison in conjunction with Partakers, Inc.’s College Behind Bars program. Several First Parishioners have served as Partaker mentors to her and she participated in a seminar including Harvard students and other prisoners taught by Dr. Stern at MCI Framingham.|
Childcare for infants and toddlers begins at 10:15 am. Children in PreK to Grade 7 will begin in worship with their families before leaving for their Spring Spirit church school classes. The Children’s Choirs will present "Thula Klizeo” and the Senior Choir will offer pieces by Mozart and Salieri.
After worship, there will be a forum with the three guest speakers and others in the Parlor - all are welcome to attend to learn more about the important work being done by these and many other individuals.
During Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall, there will be hot, homemade soup for sale to eat in or take out, with proceeds benefiting our partner church in Torda, Romania.
We hope you’ll join us!
