Pauli Murray Commemorations
On July 1, The Episcopal Church observes the Feast Day of Pauli Murray, an Episcopal priest and well known civil rights activist. This observance was recently added to The Episcopal Church’s “calendar of saints”, and so we are excited to celebrate the life and legacy of Pauli Murray with a few events in July!
In mid-July, we are planning a forum on Pauli Murray, hosted by Queer in Christ with notable author and creator of the Brave Sis project Rozella Kennedy joining us for the forum. We will learn more about Pauli’s legacy and why we celebrate her today! More details on this event will be communicated in the coming weeks.
On Sunday, July 2 at 4:30pm we are hosting a Taizé Prayer liturgy that will be themed around Pauli Murray’s life and legacy, with readings and music inspired by her witness. Friends of Queer in Christ are invited to contribute your musical talents (do you play an instrument?) or other support (reading, ushering, etc.) in helping make this special liturgy honoring Pauli Murray possible. If you might be willing to contribute your time and talents to making this special liturgy happen, please contact Michael Seewer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
