Please join the people of the Diocese of New Jersey and the Sudan Committee of our Diocese for an African Evensong featuring traditional African worship, music, dance, drums and other instruments, attire and the fervent Joy and Praise of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The African Evensong will be followed by a marvelous reception featuring African dishes and a visual presentation on theological education in Africa. In addition to offering a powerful witness for the people of Sudan/South Sudan in this continued time of crisis and war, we will be requesting a free will offering for the new Scholarship Fund of the Sudan Committee, to provide theological education/seminary education for a leader of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, and the power and presence of the Christian church in the work of justice, peace and reconciliation.
Please join us for a remarkable and inspiring evening of worship, education and fellowship as we provide a powerful voice of advocacy for the people of Sudan/South Sudan! Sponsored by the Sudan Committee.
