The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing’s Board Chair, The Rt. Rev. Matt Heyd, and Executive Director, Dr. Catherine Meeks discuss this attempt to change American History.
The life of the first Black Episcopal priest is a blueprint for building an active faith life, Bishop Rob Wright said during the annual Absalom Jones commemoration. The February 19 service, sponsored annually by The Union of Black Episcopalians, was held this year at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Decatur.
