LYDGATE — Grab a plate lunch from the pot luck and talk story by the sea for the Center for Spiritual Living’s celebration of their sixth anniversary on Sunday.

Set to start at 8 a.m. at Lydgate Park’s large pavilion, the celebration includes inspirational messages from husband and wife team Reverend Patrick Feren and Reverend Rita Andriello-Feren, co-founders of the center.

There’s also plenty of food and silent auction.

“We are proud to offer a huge silent auction with a variety of items, including jewelry and artwork as well as gift certificates to restaurant and many exciting activities all over the island,” Andriello-Feren said.

CSL Kauai is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a philosophy modeled after Ernest Holmes’ foundation of modern-thought. The philosopher promoted the idea that everything had a common thread holding it together, and that thread was love.

It’s a hodgepodge of backgrounds and religions at the CSL Sunday morning services, which start at about 9 a.m. About 80 people frequent the services at their headquarters, situated along Kuhio Highway in Kapaa Town.

CSL offers classes that address addiction and spiritual counseling, and classes that train people to work in ministry.

The nonprofit also puts on musical events like the “Love Notes Cabaret”, as both of the reverends have a background in theater.

Sunday’s event will be part regular service, part celebration, with the anniversary celebration starting at 9 a.m., featuring the Sacred Earth Choir and the message from the reverends.

The silent auction will continue after the celebration along with a huge potluck,” said Feren, noting that everyone is welcome. “We appreciate your attendance as we celebrate!”
