Alexei's Groupies - Deadline looms!
Did you know that Alexei Tartakovsky, our very own director of music, is working to complete his PhD. at CUNY? He has a recital pending in New York as part of his degree requirement. Here’s an opportunity to hear him play in a concert setting. Admission is free. Jane and Jeff Anderson have reserved a bus from CHS to the concert hall and return — for only $35 per person. The catch? We must guarantee at least 35 of the 55 bus seats to reserve the CHS music bus. (Can we fill every seat?? — bring friends!) Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Meet at CHS for a 3:30 pm departure. Alexei’s recital is at City University’s Elebash Recital Hall, 365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th Street). The Recital begins at 6:00 pm with a reception to follow. We will leave for home by 8:45 pm.

To reserve your seat, please call or email Jeff or Jane Anderson at 439-2532 or janderson4244@gmail.com prior to Friday, 2/7. Cost per person is $35.00. Checks should be made out to Church of the Holy Spirit and are due no later than Sunday February 9th. If we meet the minimum of 35 on 2/9 we go; otherwise all checks will be returned and the bus cancelled. Additionally, if we meet the minimum, there will be 20 remaining seats and reservations will continue to be accepted, along with check, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Drivers for Father Phil
I am lining up drivers to chauffeur Father Phil on the remaining House Blessing routes. From 4:30 - 7:30 pm on the following Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays: February 11,12, 13, 19, and 20. Please contact me if you can help at elesniak@mac.com or 908-420-3613.
It’s a great opportunity for uninterrupted one-on-one time with your priest and perhaps a chance to explore some of the county that you haven’t seen before!
