Current Art Show In Parish House Gallery
Spiritual Bouquet
Regis E Cummings
Flowers, Faces, Familiar places and spaces
from the artist: I consider myself to be a self directed studio artist; having developed 
over the pass 4o years by studying other artist work; being especially influenced by
 the Impressionists painter and the work of Marc Chagall. Chagall’s blending of the sacred 
in the ordinary and the sacredness of the ordinary of life spoke volumes to my understanding 
and reflection on the meaning and purpose of religion, myth, politics and art…
in the ordinary of life. “The reward has been in the work!” – Paul Simon 
I hope my art reveal a vision of Hope.

The Circle of Care Committee reminds everyone that we are here for all of us: for new parents who may welcome help as they adjust to life with an infant, for seniors who can use assistance around the house, for someone who needs a ride to an appointment. Everyone needs help at different times. We would like you to feel free to call Norman Hill, or anyone on the committee and let us know how we can help.

In addition to our regular newsletters, we occasionally send out weekly emails with important announcements and updates. If you would like to sign up to receive these emails, please click here and submit the form.
