Brighten Your Understanding of Dementia
Wednesday, May 10
Choose from two sessions: 1-2:30 pm or 6:00-8:30 pm
Join us on Wednesday, May 10 for an “enlightening” workshop on Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of Dementia! Sponsored by MUM’s Mental Health Awareness Team, the 90-minute workshop will be led by Carrie Chiusano, Executive Director of Presbyterian SeniorCare Network’s Dementia Care Center of Excellence, and sisters & attorneys Elizabeth Burkett and Susan Burkett, who have been the primary caregivers for nearly 12 years for their grandmother who has dementia. In addition to the dynamic speakers, the workshop will feature “electrifying” discussion and simple but “powerful” interactive activities. It will be offered at 1:00-2:30 p.m., and repeated again at 6:30-8:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome if this “sparks” your interest – you don’t have to be a caregiver or patient to attend! The workshop is open to the public and there is no “charge.” Call the church at 412-372-7474 to get more information or get directions.

Silence & Singing, Shadow & Candlelight, Prayer & Reflection
Taizé worship is an ecumenical sung and silent prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative space through songs, Scripture, prayer, silence and candlelight. The sanctuary is beautifully designed just for Taizé and features soft lighting, flowing fabric and many candles. The music, which is contemplative in nature, emphasizes simple one or two line phrases usually from the Psalms, other passages of Scripture or liturgy. Short chants are repeated over and over again to give the service a contemplative atmosphere. The service includes a time of prayers. Taizé provides a time at the end of the day to relax from the stress of the day’s activities. It offers a time for worship and reflection, a time for calming the body and the mind. In the silence God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts, and the light of Christ can reach, heal, and transform us. Join us as we experience this beautiful service!
