Pride Sunday 7pm: Water, Not Wine
On Sunday, June 25, due to the expected duration of the 48th Annual NYC Pride March down Fifth Avenue, there will be no 7pm Service of Meditations and Sacrament. But we hope our cup supply holds out so that we will still being serving water to marchers at that stage. If you’re in the Village for festivities, come by to say hi and — if you’re able — stick around to help clean up our garden and sidewalk!
