Sacred Sites Open House comes to Grace:
Sunday, May 6
On Sunday, May 6 , Grace will open its doors to friends, neighbors and tourists as part of the Sacred Sites Open House tour sponsored by the New York Landmarks Conservancy. Grace has always been a popular destination and we invite you to help greet visitors as they view our beautifully restored interior. Please contact Marianne Hurley to volunteer or for more information. Note: Grace will be open from 12:30 - 4 pm and the afternoon will be divided into 3 shifts.
Attend a dinner in the homes of Grace Church parishioners to welcome Allen and Allison Robinson!  

The Rector Transition/Welcome Team is organizing welcome dinners for our new Rector and we'd love for you to attend. Spots to attend are still available for the July 14 gathering which will be hosted in a parishioner's home in Brooklyn Heights.

Please email Brianna McCarty or call 785-550-1598 if you're interested in attending and, if so, what dates you'd be available. We appreciate your understanding that, due to space limitations, it is possible that not all sign ups can be accommodated this Spring. More welcome gatherings will be held in the Fall and until then, join us at the Spring Gala Welcoming the Rector on May 5. Thank you!
