First the zoom liturgy
20 NOVA members gathered in person (all fully vaccinated) at the home of Meg Tuccillo for the Sunday liturgy. The rest of the community, far and wide, gathered on zoom. The community celebrated his presence with NOVA for 50+ years. Anne prepared and offered a blessing for Quinn. The musicians were present singing with great joy.
Then the Farewell Brunch
After the liturgy NOVA members who were fully vaccinated came for a joyous but sad farewell brunch. All were so happy to see each other in person. Everyone enjoyed good food and conversation outside on the patios and yard. In the final half hour Ted was the emcee for a “roast” and presentation of a book of remembrance of the 50 years with NOVA. The music group was ready with a fun song.
