Our second women's group, named by the women as "Sanctuary Angels," gathers on the third Tuesday of each month, 6:00-8:00, also at our 22nd and Spruce St. site.
Again, shaped by our women, Sanctuary Angels begins with 30 minutes of silence in the sanctuary of Trinity Memorial Church. Art supplies and journals are available for those who wish to use them. Following the silence, we share our experiences over a light meal prepared for us by members of TMC. The evening concludes with a community building art project led by art therapist and beloved Welcome Church participant, Rachel Gucwa. Sanctuary Angels received its name based on the paintings of angels that survived a fire in the sanctuary of TMC over twenty years ago. Like those angels, our women have gone through and survived many of their own personal "fires." Each evening is marked with a photo of hands gathered together.
