Black Ecumenical Prayer Service


Location: Geddes Hall Chapel

All are welcome to a Black Ecumenical Prayer Service entitled Be Strong and Courageous “…for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). The Rev. Canon Hugh R. Page, Jr., vice president, associate provost and dean of the First Year of Studies will preside. Eric T. Styles, rector of Carroll Hall will preach.

This service, in the African American religious tradition, will use the form of a simple and short prayer service called Midday Prayer, found across many denominations such as Roman Catholic, Episcopal and Lutheran. Emorja Roberson, doctoral student in the Sacred Music Program, will lead the music.  

RSVP here.

This event is co-sponsored by Campus Ministry, Human Resources, Multicultural Student Programs and Services, Black Faculty and Staff Association, and Black Student Association.
