On Sunday, July 7th, Northern California Companions gathered at Sonnino House in Berkeley for a belated feast day celebration. They also had two other reasons to celebrate. Timothy Guile made his first covenant with the community. Timothy began formation in San Rafael but had to move to Guam for family reasons. With some creative use of technology and learning about what time zone Guam is in, the Companions were able to work with him to finish formation. The celebration was a chance for him to make his covenant in person with the Companions he has come to know. They also celebrated the new gathering space that is being developed at Sonnino. This room will now have space for all the Companions to join together for gatherings, ongoing education and community events.
