 Dear   ,    
 
For over forty years, Emmanuel Preschool has been making an impact on our surrounding community. This Sunday we will be celebrating the preschool and welcoming families and children who attend. Come to either service and keep an eye out for families who might like a warm Emmanuel welcome!

With love in Christ,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn+

 
Emmanuel Silent Retreat
"Be Still and Know"
Using silence and space 
as portals into the heart of God
 

Stop the world! I want to get off!

Have you ever felt that way? Well, the Emmanuel Silent Retreat is an excellent opportunity to do just that. Quiet, rest, good meals, deep worship, engaging reflections, and beautiful surroundings help create an environment where we can be healed and restored.

 

This year Fr. Rob is leading our retreat and will be reflecting on silence and space as portals into the heart of God. The retreat will be held at the Mount Calvary Monastery in Santa Barbara (the former St. Mary's) from Friday afternoon, May 8 through lunch on May 10. 

 

We need to get the number of attendees into Mount Calvary by Friday, so please contact Lyla Merrell at 714-528-9268 or email her at lylamerrell@sbcglobal.net if you would like to go and have not yet signed up!

 

 

 
Congratulations to Amy Kremer!

She's too modest to announce it herself, but Amy Kremer received a wonderful award recently. She was awarded Outstanding Thesis of the Year by Cal State Fullerton for her masters thesis on children's literature. Congratulations, Amy! We are proud of you!
