Volunteer Spotlight – March 2019

Untitled Design (1)

Our first Volunteer Spotlight of 2019 is our trusty volunteer, Karen Selinger from Gishrei Shalom Jewish Congregation, one of our wonderful support congregations! A couple months ago, one of our guest families was in need of some special accommodations. Karen stepped right up and generously volunteered her assistance. All of us here at Family Promise of Central CT are grateful for Karen’s dedication to our program!

For Immediate Release

Family Promise of Central Connecticut, CitySingers of Hartford Presenting Celtic Fire!  performance at Bethany Covenant Church

 NEW BRITAIN, January 9, 2019 — CitySingers of Hartford will celebrate the timelessness of the Celtic soul with a special performance to benefit Family Promise of Central Connecticut taking place March 10, 2019 at Bethany Covenant Church, located in Berlin.

‘’Musical expression of the Celtic people,” explains Suzanne Gates of City Singer of Hartford, “evolved over time from ancient Eastern chant to indigenous melody. It included sacred and devotional music that has its roots in original folksongs –from not only the British Isles, but also from the Celtic region of Galicia (northern Spain), Brittany (western France), Norway and other parts of Europe. These entrancing melodies (as well as reels and jigs!) will be played at the March 10 performance by Celtic musicians known throughout our region for their mastery of Irish harp, wooden flute, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodhrán, double bass, pipe organ and highland pipes. Poetry about the rhythms of Celtic life will further reflect the richness of an enduring culture symbolized by the eternal flame.’

Family Promise of Central Connecticut is a non- profit transitional housing program dedicated to serving homeless families in Connecticut. It fights homelessness one family at a time, by partnering with local congregations to help families with children remain intact and become self-sufficient. Family members are hosted on a temporary, weekly basis, by participating area congregations each evening. They also work on job and life skills, and young people are transported each day to local schools from a Family Promise day center located in New Britain.

Family Promise of Central Connecticut is one of more than 200 plus Family Promise affiliate organizations across the USA. Please visit the Family Promise of Central Connecticut at  https://familypromisecct.org to learn more.

WHEN: Sunday, March 10, 2019 – 4 pm

Bethany Covenant Church
785 Mill Street
Berlin, CT 06037

There will be a Voluntary Offering at the performance to benefit Family Promise of Central Connecticut
