A Letter from the Director
Sister Janet Doyle headshot
If winter makes you want to stay home and curl up with a good book, our Dine and Discuss Book Club event may be perfect. We all read the same book and then come together for a one-time dinner and discussion. 

With the New Year also comes a new Tai Chi class. Beginners tell us they catch on quickly. Also, consider joining us for a new series presented by Sister Sara Fairbanks, OP, on being a Christian in an evolving universe.

If your New Year's resolutions include exercising your mind and body, Weber can help!

Sincerely,
Sister Janet
