A Visioning Day for the Sacramento/Stockton Area
Saturday, May 30th.

Greetings Contemplative Outreach Friends,
You are invited to attend a Visioning Day for the Sacramento/Stockton Area chapter of C.O. on Saturday, May 30th.
Susan Komis from Contemplative Outreach will be facilitating the visioning process for our chapter. The day consists of looking at our history, our current needs and challenges, our future direction, and a prayerful discernment for new leadership.
Everyone in a Northern California Contemplative Outreach chapter is welcome to attend. If you are in the Sacramento/Stockton area chapter (which includes the Sierra foothills), please plan to come and fully participate. If you are in other Northern California chapters, you are welcome to observe and make contributions to the discussions, though we would ask you to refrain from participating in specific chapter discernment.

Peace,
Susan Turpin and Janice Boyd
