Greetings from Collegeville. May each of you be as well as you can be.

Similar to many other communities, we at EHoP have been attending to local, regional, and national developments regarding the spread of Covid-19 and the related preparations and cautions necessary in order to support the well-being and health of our communities.

The Executive Committee made a number of decisions regarding gatherings at EHoP, which come from a place of solidarity for the vulnerable in our communities and a sense communion among us all. Though we are intentionally slowing down and pruning our activities for the foreseeable future, we remain strong and connected.

Below, see a summary of the decisions regarding upcoming events and gatherings, as well as resources from ECMN. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out and connect.

In peace,

Christine Luna Munger, Director
