 "Memory Catcher" for Rev. Cari: There is a gold journal in the Narthex, placed there for us to write notes or tuck in photographs for Rev. Cari as we prepare for her departure. Cari's last day in the pulpit is May 3.  It's hard to let her go, but it will help to show Cari how much she has meant to us and how she has helped shape our lives and faith.
