A fundraising concert featuring performances by local artists The Queen’s Cartoonists and Acsmed Balanta. Afterparty by DJ Raebo

One in five children in New York City wouldn’t get enough to eat without the support of food pantries and soup kitchens. We believe that no one should go hungry in our community. The Lion’s Share Food Pantry at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, provides food to over 100 households per month in the Jackson Heights/Corona/Elmhurst area of Queens.

Join us for a fun evening of music, drinks, and dancing! The proceeds will go directly to providing food, diapers, and other essential household goods to the most vulnerable members of our community.

No one knows who fired the first shot in Elaine, Arkansas in 1919, triggering one of the deadliest race riots in United States history. That stark moment was a turning point for American civil liberties, propelling changes to our criminal justice system and paving the way for the Civil Rights movement.

On Sunday, February 19 at 2PM at Trinity Church, actors will read selections from J. Chester Johnson’s beautiful poetic rendering about one of the worst genocides in American history, with accompanying dance by Trinity’s Movement Choir and a multimedia presentation.

The event is part of Trinity Church Wall Street’s observance of Black History Month.

Conversations That Matter:
Building Bridges | A Christian-Muslim Interfaith Dialogue
March 26, 2017 1:30 pm – 4:00 pmWith over one billion followers each, Islam and Christianity are major religions that influence the thinking and values of over 40 percent of the world population. In order to build a true dialogue, we must cultivate an awareness of shared beliefs and theological differences. By learning about each other, from each other, we can create mutual trust and respect.

Join us for another thought provoking ‘Conversation that Matters’ as our speakers discuss and discover our common call as people of faith to bring justice, healing and peace to our world. The moderator for our event, Rev. Masud ibn Syedullah, TSSF, is one of the founding members of what is now the Episcopal-Muslim Relations Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.
