Uncovering Parish Histories Report - Burying Ground Project Presentation
Sunday, February 26th
St. John's Burying Ground Committee will take part in a presentation through the Diocese of Long Island on Sunday. In an effort to tell the truth about past injustice and point ourselves, our parishes, and our diocese towards a more just future, the Cathedral of the Incarnation and the Pro-Cathedral of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church is pleased to announce the first public report of the ongoing “Uncovering Parish Histories project” on February 26, 2023, 6:00-7:00pm.
The Rev. Dr. Craig Townsend, Historian-in-Residence for Racial Justice for the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, and clergy and lay volunteers from several parishes, will discuss their explorations of the history of their parishes’ complicity in slavery and the slavery economy, as well as other periods of involvement in racial justice and injustice actions, and the spiritual import of that work. This historical research takes place under the auspices of Beloved Journey, an antiracism project of the Diocese of Long Island, and currently involves twenty parishes.
All are welcome to join us virtually on February 26, 2023 at 6pm Eastern at this Zoom link.
