In Other News:

Coming in October, St Mark's Methodist Church in the Heights, together with Christ Church Cathedral downtown, will be offering a new mass for families of children with special needs.
  • "Rhythms of Grace - a place to dance, draw, wiggle, and rest in God!" will be an ecumenical service and playtime for special needs children and their families. The program is being started so parents can have a place where they could worship with their children without worrying about verbal disruptions, distracting movements or gestures. Rhythms of Grace presents Bible stories in an interactive model that uses music and movement, story cards, tactile and kinesthetic activities and opportunities for developing communication skills.
  • For more information contact the Special Needs Coordinator, Martha Lewis, at Christ Church Cathedral: lighthouse@christchurchcathedral.org or 713-220-8455.
  • Information meetings are October 3 at Christ Church Cathedral and October 17 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, both at 1pm. Services begin in November at Christ Church Cathedral on the first Sunday of the month and at St. Mark's on the third Sunday of the month, both at 1pm.
