Dear Friends,

Black Episcopalians in the Pacific Northwest are gathering to celebrate the life and ministry of Absalom Jones. Here is the bulletin:

Absalom Jones Celebration via Zoom

The strength and resilience of a formerly enslaved person who later became a priest is why Black Episcopalians sing today. We cordially invite you to attend the first Evening Service hosted by the PNW Chapter of the UBE!

The African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas, founded by Absalom Jones and Richard Allen, is holding a morning service on Sunday, February 14th, also dedicated to Jones. You can learn more about Absalom Jones from the UBE website and the Episcopal archives.

Participants from throughout the region will share in prayer, scripture, and song in virtual assembly through Zoom. Attending clergy appear in the bulletin.

Time: 3:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
