“Westside Abbey” is underway at Westwood First Presbyterian Church. We will gather on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month for discussion and practice on deepening our awareness of Christ’s Presence in and around us.

On July 9th, Reverend Dr. Rich Jones will be facilitating a presentation on “St. Brigid”, a patroness of many things, including poetry, learning, healing, protection, blacksmithing, livestock and dairy production. In her honor, a perpetual fire was kept burning at Kildare for centuries.

On the 23rd, “Big Book Prayer” by the absolutely amazing Rev. Mary Laymon!

Join our concertmaster Celeste Golden Andrews and her fellow Summermusik musicians as they present works inspired by literature. Debussy and Vaughan Williams found their inspiration in poems by Stéphane Mallarmé and George Meredith, respectively. Walton’s musical setting of Edith Sitwell’s poetry was intended as an accompaniment of a recitation of Façade. Schubert used his incidental music to Helmina von Chézy’s play Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus for his A minor quartet, and returned to Matthias Claudius’s poem, which he had previously used for the song of same title (D. 531).

City Gospel Mission’s Princesses Ballet lives right here at Westwood First began in 2003 with 8 girls and has grown to serve over 500 girls. The program serves girls ages 3-18 at 21 sites across Greater Cincinnati. Our dancers are from low-income families. The majority of participants could not otherwise afford private dance lessons. Princesses Ballet is provided for free, except a modest cost for dance wear.

The program, with a mentoring approach and a focus toward success for each girl, helps girls build character, self-esteem, discipline, and a love of dance. When you sponsor a Princesses Ballet dancer, you’re giving a young girl the tools she needs to be successful.
