CLC in Metro New York Newsletter
Hi Dear CLC Friends! 

This is an e-newsletter for CLC members in the New York area.  We hope to offer a glance of CLC happenings, resources, prayer, reflection, and/or photos--weekly or thereabouts.  This can help to connect us and to encourage us in our mission of being Christ for one another and in doing our little part to create a Beloved Community in our world today.

Your feedback, stories, photos are very welcome! Please send to me at .

Member Happenings

CLC Member Linda Baratte, Ph.D., will lead a Day of Prayer on-site at Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown, NJ.  Linda is currently on the Board of Trustees at the center and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having earned her doctorate at Fordham University and then working as faculty member and director of the Center for Theological and Spiritual Development at the College of Saint Elizabeth.  Linda and her husband Jim have been members of CLC since since January 2019. 

The theme of the day is: Giving Flesh to Holiness: Saints as Living Witnesses to the Gospel.  It will be held on Sunday, November 1, 2020 from 10:00am to 3:00pm [Max # attendees: 22]

Retreatants "will explore the theological and spiritual underpinnings found in the 'cloud of witnesses' who are members with us in the Church visible and invisible.  Their legacy gives us comfort...and the challenge to become our own pointer to what God is like in this time and place."  If you are interested, Click Here for more information and to register.
