    We are excited to announce the formation of two new anti-racist learning groups at Epiphany, using the Episcopal curriculum called Sacred Ground. Sacred Ground is a small group discussion series on race, built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. Sacred Ground is part of the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation and justice in our personal lives, ministries and our society. It is open to all, and is especially designed to help white people talk with other white people. For more information, please click here.

    A pilot group at Epiphany recently completed this course, finding it to be challenging, thought-provoking and emotional at times. They will serve as facilitators for these new groups. One group will meet virtually on Mondays via Zoom beginning January 30, while the second will meet in person at Epiphany on Tuesdays beginning January 31. Each group will be limited to 12 participants and will meet from 7:00 - 8:30 pm for 10 sessions over approximately 12-14 weeks, with some weeks off for school vacation, etc. The curriculum for each group will be the same and includes approximately 1.5/2 hours of outside reading/viewing each week in addition to group meetings. To sign up, please email the parish office or call 781-729-1922. If you have any questions about the course content, please contact Suzanne Owayda or Rev. Nick Myers. We are eager to share this material and deepen our beloved Epiphany community’s commitment to and understanding of racial justice.

    • Drivers to take Zahida to OB appointments
    • In search of: volunteer to join Roz Nazzaro on the housing team. Contact Roz to learn what she does!  

    Lots of smiles at Adil’s soccer clinic


    The whole family has been very busy this fall! A few of their recent activities:

    • Zahida shops for some new school clothes for the boys with Barbara.
    • Adil completes his series of 8 PT visits at Spaulding Lexington.
    • APS is moving ahead with a full evaluation plan for Adil potentially including PT, OT, and individualized learning support. 
    • School is going swimmingly for Toheed, Sapna, Mansor, and Adil. They are all eager, happy learners. Adil laid his 100 strip out on the dining room floor to demonstrate his counting expertise; everyone, even Kifayat, joined in counting practice. 
    • Ihsanullah and Zahida loved attending Curriculum Night at Thompson School last week, meeting the children's teachers (Sapna, Mansor, and Adil) and seeing their classrooms. 
    • Mansor's soccer team will be playing at Thorndike Field, in case you'd like to watch on Sunday, 10/9, at 2:00 pm.
    • The WIC/EATS shopping team has begun teaching Zahida and Ihsanullah to use the scale at Stop & Shop to understand per-pound pricing. WIC card, SNAP, and EBT cash shopping for non-food items seem to have clicked after a significant learning period. 
    • Kudos to Kevin McDonough, literacy tutor for Ihsanullah and Zahida! Both are working hard between Kevin's weekly sessions and are so proud of their increasing ability to read the flash cards he leaves with them. Literacy and numeracy are a long, hard slog for the Rawans and they are making great progress!
