This is a republication of “Meet The Community” from 2014 in celebration of Black History Month. Like many Anglican and Episcopal churches, Black people are an important part of St. Philip's parish family. This series is offered in respectful appreciation of their esteemed place in our Parish as well as an acknowledgment of the important role of Black people in churches across North America.
Black History Month (BHM)
takes place in February each year and it is an opportunity for all
people to celebrate those who have championed civil rights, to remember
some very disturbing facts about the past and to acknowledge the social
justice work that still needs to be done.
