6 PM • Banter & Bingo with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Community connection has become more essential than ever, as we all struggle to settle into our virtual world. That’s why we are thrilled to bring back a cherished and missed signature event — Banter & Bingo! Sister Lida Christ, of the Boston Sisters of Perpetual indulgence, will join us as our hostess extraordinaire for a lighthearted evening of Banter and Bingo! Everyone who makes a donation to our Giving Tuesday campaign will receive a link for Banter and Bingo cards, and prizes will be awarded throughout the night. All are welcome, and we don’t want cost to be a barrier for anyone. If you are unable to give at this time, please email Shari Caplan at to join us.
