Monday, November 5, 7 pm: The American Slavery Project Presents: Unheard Voices

St. Mary’s will host Unheard Voices, an original play with music featuring stories by celebrated writers like Keith Josef Adkins, Dennis Allen III, Radha Blank, Dominique Morrisseau, Cassandra Medley, Judy Tate, Alexander Thomas, Cori Thomas, Mfoniso Udofia, and more. The stories are based on actual graves of people who lived long ago. It is a celebration and ritual honoring the African-descended people, enslaved and free, who lived, loved and toiled in colonial New York and are buried anonymously in African Burial grounds throughout the city. Suggested Donation $15

Sunday, November 11, 12 pm: Collage Icon Workshop with artist Simon Carr

Icons are images that Christians use as a focus for prayer, usually portraying a saint or a scene from Jesus’ life. They also often represent Mary the Mother of Jesus. This coffee hour workshop will concentrate on a contemporary version of the theme: Mary Help of Christians. You can bring small images of Mary, and of the events and associations you have with her—personal photos, images from the media, animals, flowers. We will take a sheet of cardboard and cover it with gold paper, then surround Mary with images.

Sunday, November 17, 4 pm: Ordination of Spencer Cantrell

By the grace of God and the consent of the people on behalf of The Right Reverend Brian L. Cole Bishop of East Tennessee, The Right Reverend Mary D. Glasspool Assistant Bishop of the Diocese of New York will ordain Spencer Daniel Cantrell to the Sacred Order of Priests at St. Mary’s Church.

Wednesday, November 21: Multifaith Thanksgiving Celebration

Come and join us for a delicious meal and prayer service sponsored by a host of religious leaders from Christian, Buddhist, Jewish and Muslim faith traditions who have come together to serve God, one another, and those in need.  At All Souls Church, 88 St. Nicholas Ave. With Sai Baba Manhattan, Mandala Café, Harlem Havruta, and other partners. Everyone is invited!

Thursday, November 29, 6:30 pm – Austin Channing Brown Book Talk at St. Mary’s

In a time when nearly all institutions claim to value “diversity” in their mission statements, Austin Channing Brown offers a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. She writes in riveting detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Join Austin Channing Brown as she discusses her book and invites us to confront apathy, recognize God’s ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness–if we let it–can save us all.
