Save The Date: Juneteenth Prayer and Witness
This from our friends at St. James Parish (Peace & Justice Ministry)…
Save the Date:
Juneteenth Prayer and Witness
Saturday, June 19, 10:00 – 11:30 am
St. James Church, Arlington Heights
Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19 to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
Several Arlington Heights Congregations will be joining us and we’d love to include OLW parish as well!
