Join the festivities at the Ascension Water Table to mark the occasion of the 43rd Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots as we hand out water to marchers. If you wish to RSVP contact Steve Hubbard or sign up on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall. We may have a large crowd near the church since the march route was shortened last year to start at 36th Street and turn west on 9th Street from Fifth Avenue by the reviewing stand. We will set up around noon after the 11 am service.
