The weekend of February 13th our diocese will celebrate the feast of Blessed Absalom Jones. The Rev. Absalom Jones was born into slavery and became the first black priest ordained in The Episcopal Church – ordained right here in our diocese. This bold and prophetic action testifies to the historic, revolutionary character of our diocese and had a profound impact on the entirety of The Episcopal Church.
Our celebration of Blessed Absalom will be an online service of worship and celebration on Saturday, February 13, from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
