The Rev. Leroy Lyons, preaching
Join us as we gather for our 2nd Annual Celebration of Emancipation Day! We’ll hold a joyous worship service at 5:00 p.m., followed by a reception featuring a steel drum band and Caribbean foods.

The Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 ended slavery in the British Empire on August 28, 1834. Emancipation Day is widely observed in the former Carribbean Colonies of Britain during the first week of August to remember and celebrate this historic moment of liberation from oppression and injustice. As the Anglican Church is large and popular in the Caribbean, Emancipation Day includes liturgical celebrations. All are welcome!

The Rev. Leroy Lyons
