A Tale of Two Houses with the Rev'd. Cn. Ted Copland September 18-29 Priest-in-Residence, Only a few blocks from the House of The Redeemer is 180 East 101st Street. Once a home for immigrants to America, it was the first stop for Elizabeth MacKillop, a child from Edinburgh, during those early years of the 20th century when Edith Shepard Fabbri was about to build the house we enjoy today. Join Cn. Ted Copland in reflecting on how these two homes, and the lives of Edith and Elizabeth, provide snapshots of American life, both then and now. Free of charge. Thursday, September 28, 6:30 pm.
From Urbino to Manhattan: The Della Rovere Library, In 1607, the last duke of Urbino, Francesco Maria II Della Rovere, built a great library in his ducal summer palace in Urbania to celebrate the birth of a long- awaited heir. The boy grew up to be a monster and died young of debauchery. The duchy passed to the pope after the duke's death in 1631 and the books were swallowed up by Rome as well. Two and half centuries later, the Library's magnificent shelving was shipped across the Atlantic by an aesthete-architect, Egisto Fabbri, one of the early collectors of Cezanne, for the Fabbri Mansion, one of the loveliest houses of the Upper East Side. Not far away, other fragments from the break-up of Urbino - the Studiolo of Gubbio and the Barberini Panels - found a worthy home in the Metropolitan Museum. Join Joseph Connors, author and Professor of History of Art, Architecture and Renaissance at Harvard University, as he explores this story of how Manhattan became a safe haven for the wreckage of a splendid Renaissance duchy. Tickets: $25. Thursday, October 12, 6:30 pm.
Reiki Classes, Health Advocates for Older People will continue its series of Reiki classes on Tuesdays, with instructor Wendy Wade, beginning October 17 and concluding November 14.

Tuesdays, October 17, 24, 31, November 7, 14, 10:30 am-11:30 am.
The "Fourth Industrial Revolution" vs. Religion, Those of us a certain age find ourselves on the brink of a world vastly-possibly irrevocably-altered from the one we know. Technology is increasingly displacing its more error-prone human counterparts. Manufacturing uses 3D printing to create substances ranging from human tissue (Organovo) to architectural elements in Beijing's high-rises. Conversely, Christian churches in more developed, first-world nations are in critical decline; growing numbers of millennials choose "none" to indicate their religious preference. What's really happening here and whence cometh our salvation? The Rev'd. Cn. John F. Rice, D. Min., October Priest-in-Residence, will confront these questions and share concerns and hopes for a tomorrow that includes a God of unchanging love and compassion for all. Free of Charge. Tuesday, October 17, 6:30 pm.
The Fabbri Chamber Concert Series will begin with Kate Maroney, mezzo-soprano, Nils Neubert, tenor and Yuri Kim, piano. A reception with the artists will follow. General admission. Tickets will be $45 at the door. Advance tickets are $40 ($25 for students with a valid ID). Please call to reserve. Thursday, October 19, 7:30 pm.
Finding the Words with Suzanne Martinucci will take a look at writing in the fields of publishing, entertainment, advertising, and legislation circa 1916-1917. Who was writing? What were they writing? Who were these writers trying to reach -- and why? Ms. Martinucci, who has spoken at the House previously on cultural and operatic subjects, will attempt to explore the power of prose in the days long before acronyms, bloggers, and tweets. Tickets: $25. Thursday, November 2, at 6:30 pm.
Missionary Life in Tanzania 1876-1961, The Rev'd. Cn. Sandra McCann, MD, November Priest-in-Residence, and her husband, Martin McCann, MD, spent twelve years in Africa as missionaries of the Episcopal Church. They will discuss the history of exploration in Africa, with an emphasis on missionary movements in central Tanganyika with the Church Missionary Societies of England and Australia. Free of charge. Tuesday, November 7, 6:30 pm.
