As South Florida adjusts to the coronavirus pandemic, in-person services and meetings are restarting.
9962954266?profile=RESIZE_180x180One group that begins meeting again in January after an extended hiatus is the Interfaith Café, a discussion group that talks about cross-faith topics. The group is hosted by the Interfaith Coalition, a clergy group that coordinated events like family days at the park and an Interfaith Earth Day.
The monthly meeting features a presentation followed by a discussion and refreshments at the South County Civic Center, 16700 Jog Road, Delray Beach. All are welcome.
This month’s meeting is from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 20. The topic for discussion: emotions of reconnecting. The guest speaker is life coach Rosemarie Rose-Spencer of Wellington.
She is a retired Department of Defense administrator with a background in mediation, motivational speaking and helping military families handle transitions. That gives her a keen perspective about handling intense emotions.

Islamic Center open house
The Islamic Center of Boca Raton, 3480 NW Fifth Ave., hosts a monthly open house from 7 to 9 p.m. the first Thursday of the month. Everyone is welcome and no reservations are needed. The next meeting is Jan. 6.
Anyone who is new to or interested in Islam, clear from misconceptions, will find this free event engaging and educational. Refreshments are served followed by a tour of the mosque and question/answer session. Call 561-395-7221 or visit www.icbr.org.

Old ritual at Unity of Delray
Unity of Delray Beach will hold its White Stone Ceremony at 7 p.m. Jan. 12 at the church, 101 NW 22nd St.
This evening of self-awareness has its roots in an ancient ritual that helped each individual focus on a personal path by selecting a new name.
This new name was written on a white stone tablet and signified freedom from the past, from who the person was. As they began a new year, participants made commitments and declared what their focuses would be by calling forth the new names.
Everyone is welcomed. For more information, call 561-276-5796.

Join in prayer for the protection of the unborn child with the Most Rev. Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach, who will lead the rosary at 11 a.m. Jan. 22, at the old courthouse, 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach.
