The Wheel of Life

All Souls is pleased to initiate “Wheel of Life,” a program to let congregation members communicate with each other about matters affecting their personal lives. Announcements such as births, deaths, hospitalizations, home recuperations, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, retirements, and relocations will be e-mailed to those who elect to receive them. These announcements will be sent out with the Orders of Service, linked in our weekly emails on Fridays and printed on Sundays.

To submit an announcement for Wheel of Life, email

Guidelines for submitting an announcement:

  • Please keep it brief – fewer than 50 words
  • Make it topical – this is a forum for sharing about personal life transitions. It should not be used to promote products or services or to seek material assistance.
  • Respect confidentiality – only submit an announcement on behalf of someone else with his or her
    explicit permission.

As an example, a typical announcement might read … “Florence Nightingale has returned to her apartment from surgery at NYU Medical Center. She is making a rapid recovery, and would welcome phone calls (212-234-5678) and e-mails ( from friends.”

This program was initiated by the Deacons to help deepen our sense of community and connectedness at All Souls.
