An Evensong service of remembrance for those who died at the Pulse mass shooting June 12, 2016. We will remember all of the lives lost, including Latinx and LGBTQ lives, as well as share our strength with all those still impacted by this horrific event. Wonderful music and poetry will be part of the service. The service will take place at The Church of St Matthew and St Timothy, 26 West 84th St, New York, New York 10024. This event is co-sponsored by The Church of the Ascension, INTERSECTION: Faith, Latinx, LGBTQ; Fe, Familia, Igualdad: The Latinx Roundtable; The Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion; EDNY Young Adult Network; The Church of St. Matthew and St. Timothy; and The Church of the Epiphany.
