Dear Members and Friends of the Presbyteries of Boston, Northern New England, Northern New York and Southern New England,
Grace and Peace to you in this Easter Season!
We are pleased to share two worship services, for Sunday April 11 and Sunday April 18 as a way to give our ministry leaders, worship and music leaders and other worship leaders – across our Presbyteries, the opportunity for two full Sundays of sabbath rest following the busy Lent and Holy Week season, which was challenged this year by the realities of virtual worship and the growing Covid-19 pandemic in our communities.
These worship services are led by staff from the four Presbyteries alongside our two preachers: the Rev. Dr. SanDawna Gaulman Ashley for April 11th and the Rev. Dr. Claudio Carvalhaes for April 18. We are sharing music from some of our congregations and ministry partners.
We know there are many of you in our Presbyteries who serve in specialized ministry or are honorably retired. We hope and pray that these worship services will be an opportunity for you to also worship, to rest in God’s Spirit and Word, and to join with others around the region.
As you share these worship services with your local ministry, here is the full information and links for each service. There will also be live broadcasts at 10AM on each Sunday morning via the Facebook pages of our respective Presbyteries.

May this Easter Season, the season of hope in the Resurrection, be filled with God’s peace, blessings and comfort for you and for those you love and care for. Please know that your ministry and all that you do is a blessing to many in this unprecedented time we are living through. We are grateful for you, and for the ministry you share with others in this time.
Blessings and Peace,
Rev. David Baer, Clerk, Presbytery of Southern New England
