Saturday, May 11th, 2:00 pm – Young Souls May Hike
We’ll meet at the Smithsonian Metro stop and head over to Hains Point on the East Potomac Park between the Washington Channel and Potomac River. Please bring a water bottle and shoes that are good for walking. Important note: Last time we did this walk we somehow wound up in an ice cream store at the end; it’s possible we’ll have the same trouble with maps again this time. Facebook event here, and contact email@example.com if you have questions.
Sunday, May 19th, 1:00pm – Young Souls May Brunch
Monday, May 20th, 7:00 – 9:00 – Many Voices Reading Group — DATE CHANGE FROM MAY 13th!
Each month, a group of Young Souls gathers to talk about a short story. During May, we’ll read an early Afrofuturist story: W.E.B. Du Bois’ “The Comet,” about the only two survivors of a comet that hit NYC. The story’s about race and religion, and is a super interesting and very early (1920!) sci-fi piece. The story is available here in text form, and an audio version is available here. Please RSVP here or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, just so we have a sense of how many people are coming. We’ll meet at Neil’s place (check the YS listserv for address). Feel free (but not obligated) to bring snacks/drinks, and newcomers are always welcome!
Tuesday, May 21st, 5:30 pm- Happy Hour with Rev. Rebecca
Did you know that Rev. Rebecca Parker is the official staff liaison for young souls?! Come, have a drink and celebrate all of her support. We will be meeting at All Souls Bar (3125, 725 T St NW, Washington, DC 20001) and will order pizza from the restaurant next door. Facebook event here. Questions? Contact Claire at email@example.com
May 31st – June 2nd – Weekend on the Bay
Join in for some fun at Camp Tockwogh (about two hours from DC on the Eastern Shore). We want to bring in a robust YS community this year! Registration is now open! There will be activities: campfires, workshops, vespers, a talent show, water sports, archery, hiking, and plenty of time to relax, self-organize and enjoy the beautiful setting. Let’s turn it up this year! RSVP on FB here and register/find more info here: http://www.all-souls.org/wob. Questions? Email Martha or Alice: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.

Invitation to join the Young Souls POC Caucus
The YS POC Caucus was founded early in 2018, in recognition of the need for a Young Soul POC space. They are currently opening the group to new YS POC members! The caucus is a chance for people of color in our community to gather for fun activities (dinner parties, game nights, book circles etc.) or more serious conversations (discussions on making All Souls an inclusive and affirming space etc.). If you are interested in joining, fill out this form and a member of the caucus will reach out to you. Please feel free to email us (email@example.com) or Alice Newberry (firstname.lastname@example.org), a founding member of the caucus and former YS Social Justice Chair, if you have any questions!

Souls in the Center is a fellowship of members and friends of All Souls from ages thirty+.

Seeking ushers for Sunday services
Ushers welcome congregants and visitors, hand out the orders of service, and help everything run smoothly and safely. The commitment is only one service each month, so it’s a great way to get involved. Contact Mark Matthews at (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more or sign up.
