In the Sacred Presence of Suffering: How Do We Survive Such Horror and Splendor?

Cancellation of Sunday Services
 In the event that Sunday services need to be cancelled, an announcement will be sent via email and will be posted on the Society's website.  In addition, the office phone message will be updated (by 8:00 AM Sunday morning) and television stations WWLP (Channel 22) and WGGB (Channel 40) will be notified.  It is recommended that you check at least 2 of these sources (e.g., you will not get the recorded phone message if the building is without power).  The decision to cancel services will be made no later than 7:30 AM on the Sunday in question.
