Interfaith Story Circle

Summoning Our Ancestors, November 9, 2022, 7:15 – 8:45 p.m.

Please join us for our monthly Zoom meeting.

The path of life that we walk has often been prepared by those who came before us. We are shaped by the stories of our ancestors whether they be biological, historical, religious, or mythical. Our two guest storytellers will share stories of those who have inspired and changed them. Perhaps you will have a story to share as well?

In 1995, Kate Dudding was initially drawn to storytelling as a way of preserving the memories of her parents. Now, in addition to those stories, Kate also tells true stories about people who made a difference. She won the Story Slam at the 2010 National Storytelling Conference in Los Angeles and many of her five CDs have won a national storytelling award. Kate has been a member and strong supporter of the Interfaith Story Circle for many years.

Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi believes in the power of the spoken word to enlighten, educate, and delight all who listen!  A versatile performer, emcee and workshop presenter, her stories of wit, wonder and wisdom captivate audiences of all ages whether she is standing in the classroom or on a concert stage. Along with Muriel Horowitz, Gail Burger, Kusum Gupta and Fatima Thompson, she co-founded the Dutchess County Interfaith Council (DCIC ) Story Circle which meets in various houses of worship throughout Dutchess County to share stories. DCIC Story Circle has presented an annual Peace Concert: An Afternoon of Stories for the past 18 years.

Come share your stories related to the theme, or just come to listen. 

Either way, you will be warmly welcomed.

Free and Open to the Public
