GALA, the Guild and Association of Liturgical Arts, will present it first workshop Friday, September 29, 2017 from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

This new organization, funded by an Episcopal Bishop of Oregon Foundation grant, hopes to offer ways to access the Divine through creativity and support our worship in the beauty of Holiness. Our first workshop will focus on stole making and personal icons.  Please contact the Reverend Nancy Gallagher at revgallagher@gmail.com to register or call/text at 541-912-7722.

At convention, this year GALA  will host a Vestment Exchange in addition to a Retirement Party for altar linens and vestments that are no longer serviceable.  Bring your no-longer-needed vestments, altar linens, and sacred objects to the Exchange.  For linens and vestments that are too damaged to repair, GALA will take them for repurposing and proper retirement.  Do you need vestments?  Come to the exchange and see if GALA has items that will support your beautiful worship.

One of the projects that GALA will do is make stoles for all newly ordained clergy for the Bishop to distribute.  We are gathering those who sew from all over the diocese to assist in this project.  Please contact the Reverend Nancy Gallagher at revgallagher@gmail.com to participate or call/text at 541-912-7722.
