Why:           The three CONECT member congregations in Norwalk (St. Jerome, Temple Shalom, and Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Foundation) have organized to address issues of common concern within their congregations. The issues addressed this evening are those that impact congregation members and as CONECT congregations, these three congregations -with the support of the larger CONECT congregational network -have decided to take action at the local level. This is CONECT’s first local issues assembly in greater Norwalk. Together, we hope to build our power, celebrate our progress, and set our future course towards making positive contributions to the greater Norwalk community and Connecticut!  ###

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city.

As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.
