After 28 years on our staff, our beloved Director of Religious Education for Children and Youth, Kathleen Carpenter, is retiring at the end of December.

On Friday, December 18, we will gather on Zoom for a festive retirement celebration, giving thanks for the invaluable impact Kathleen has had on the lives of our congregation’s children and youth for decades as well as the ways she’s nurtured and enlivened our congregation as a whole.

On December 18, children, youth and CYRE volunteers are invited to kick off the festivities at 6:15 p.m. Then at 7 p.m. we’ll open the party to all ages for communal merriment, a chance to toast Kathleen’s accomplishments and send her off into this next chapter of life in style!

Please contact Eve Stevens with any questions (

We look forward to seeing you there!
