Frauen anderer Herkunft, anderen Sprachen
Women from other countries and speaking different languages
This group was formed several years ago and brings together women from other countries who, like we at St. Catherine’s, come together to worship here in Stuttgart . For many years we celebrated Advent together but unfortunately we had to cancel the last two meetings due to Covid. So instead of celebrating Advent we are now planning to celebrate Easter, as you can see from the invitation. So please make a note of the date, Friday, 22nd April 2022 from 4 pm until 6 pm in the Parish Centre of the Friedenskirche. For more information do get in touch. Alison email@example.com
