From the CLD for August,


The yearly Emmaus picnic was held on August 8 at Pleasant Valley Park in Rohrersville, MD.

The weather was great, we had a good turnout and a wonderful time was had by all.

Thanks to Debbie Henry for leading a 4th Day Work Shop.


On July 11th, 7 members of the clergy participated on Emmaus training to allow them to serve as Spiritual Directors on Emmaus weekends. Thanks to: Pastors Cynthia Caldwell, Ken Walker, Eliezer Valentin-Castanon, Dennis Jackman, Matthew Swope, Jonathan Spurrier, & Patricia Abell for your commitment to serving the Lord in this manner.
