King's Chapel and Racial Justice

Members of King's Chapel are eager to continue the dialogue of racial justice and equality, begun last year and strengthened through our most recent book group, Waking up White.  For members and friends wanting to know of more opportunities to become engaged in a greater community conversation, we will post events here when available. 

There will be  public communal reading on the Common at  noon  on  July 3rd  of Frederick Douglass' "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?"   For more information on this event, click here

Accessibility Assists

Our beautiful Georgian sanctuary designed by Peter Harrison and completed in 1754, has been lovingly maintained by the congregation since its completion. One of the box pews has been made wheel-chair accessible. Ushers are available to assist those who are wheelchair-bound to that pew.

A sound system has been installed in the sanctuary of The Chapel to amplify the sound during worship services. Hearing assistance devices are available for your use. Please see an Usher for assistance.
