On Sunday, June 17 at 10:30 am, our service will be Simple Gifts with Rev. Diane Rollert and music by Sandra Hunt and the Basque group Sasi ardiak with Maider Martineau, Vianney Desplantes and Jokin Irungaray on the trikitixa, alboka, euphonium and percussion, and the Parts in Peace Choir, directed by Maider Martineau.
This Sunday will be pure celebration and full of music as we say goodbye to our beloved song leader and choir director, Maider Martineau, who is returning to the Basque country in France, and to Yvette Salinas, who is stepping down as Religious Exploration Assistant (though she’ll still be with us!). This will be a time to say thanks for the music, the people (including fathers and father figures) and the many simple gifts in our lives. The service will be followed by a special reception in honour of Maider and Yvette.
Join us after the service for the last RE Community lunch for the RE year. After lunch, there will be a special concert in the sanctuary with Maider, Vianney, Jokin, Parts in Peace, Sandra and others for a bittersweet goodbye celebration of Maider on her final day with us.
