Remembering Mary Rubach

Dear friends,
On Sunday, August 12, Mary’s daughter, Katherine Beaven, visiting from England, will join us at The Christian Community in San Francisco to share memories of her mother with her many friends here in the Bay Area. We will gather for conversation at 11:45 a.m., following the Act of Consecration of Man at 10:30 a.m.
Mary and her husband, Hermann, were among the founding group of our San Francisco congregation in 1956, and for decades served as leaders of the Bay Area branch of the Anthroposophical Society, hosting an ongoing study group in their Berkeley home and organizing lectures, festivals and other anthroposophical events. Hermann died in 1992 and in 2007 Mary returned to England to live near her daughter, Katherine, and her son Christoph.
Please SAVE THE DATE for this event, and pass the word to any friends of Mary who may not receive this notice. The Christian Community is located at 906 Divisadero St. at McAllister in San Francisco.

Our Website is Back Up!

We would like to apologize to the anthroposophic community of California, as our website,, has been down for several months.  We had been using a low-cost server, and it appears that our website was subject to a type of cyber attack that left the site electronically muddled and inaccessible for quite some time, befuddling tech helpers at over three organizations.

We are happy to announce that finally, we have successfully managed to transfer the site to a new hosting company which will provide better protection for the website as well as faster load times.  There are still a few visual glitches that await correction, but the site is fully functional.  Many new integrations have been put in place to ensure that the site will continue to function well.  In addition, several members have joined a group administering the website.  The new hosting service costs $300 per year, and we are welcoming contributions to help cover this cost.  If you are able, please send a check to Susan Overhauser at 3468 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Suite B203, Lafayette, CA 94549, or through PayPal to [email protected]  We are all very grateful for your contributions!

We could also use a few volunteers to help ensure that the information and links on the website are still current.  We could use one volunteer each for the Groups page, the Schools page, the Services page, the Links page, the More Links Page, and the Anthroposophy page.  For the Groups and Schools and Services pages, this would involve contacting each entity to ensure that the information is still accurate.  For the Links and More Links pages, this would simply involve testing all the links and reporting which links are broken, and, if possible, find corrected links.

If you are willing to volunteer to help ensure the information is up to date on this website, please contact us using our contact page.  Thank you so much!
