Dear Servants of the Homeless, Poor and Oppressed,

You may have heard at recently that FOCUS Churches of Albany will hold this year’s annual Service of Remembrance for those who have passed away from our many circles of service.

We offer this simple gathering for their friends, and for those who served them, to grieve the loss of very resilient people. They too often live with a heavy burden of grief, even on good days. It seems right that we now offer this chance to stand together in this grief, as First Lutheran Church and the Capital Area Council of Churches has so faithfully done in years past.

The Service of Remembrance will be held after the Tuesday Breakfast Club on February 21 at 9 a.m. for 20 – 30 minutes, in the church hall of Westminster Presbyterian Church, 85 Chestnut Street, Albany.
