Interfaith Convocation by the Sea

Our Interfaith Convocation by the Sea was a great success!  Attendance was 185 at the Thursday morning bible study and 281 at the Thursday evening program.  One hundred and twenty parishioners from St. Francis attended the Shabbat service at Congregation Beth Yam on Friday evening.  The joint planning committee thanks all who helped make this such a remarkable event: Fr. Mike, Fr. Jim, Rabbi Bloom, our donors, members of our choir, Women of St. Francis, Knights of Columbus, the St. Francis Thursday morning bible study group, countless volunteer helpers, and most of all, everyone who attended the events.  It was a celebration of learning, prayer, and friendship with our Congregation Beth Yam neighbors!  A video of the entire Shabbat service with Rabbi Michael Cook’s talk can be found on the Congregation Beth Yam Facebook page.
