Sisters of the Holy Grail ~ Meeting June 23, 2021

Sisters of the Holy Grail Zoom meetings are at 7:00 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month.  Because we cannot meet in person and duplicate the experience of sharing over a meal, the group decided to do a book study.  The book is From Widows to Warriors: Women’s Stories from the Old Testament by Lynn Japinga.  Japinga is an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America and Professor of Religion at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. 

All women are invited to join us. 

If you are interested in joining the Zoom meetings, please email:
hwiseman@stthomasepiscopal.org .
