Tonight: World AIDS Day at Park Slope Roman Catholic Church
Tonight as part of World AIDS Day, there will be an interfaith prayer service at St. Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church in Park Slope. This is the fourth year that the GLBTS (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Straight) Ministry of St. Augustine’s seeks to call attention to the ongoing AIDS epidemic.
During the weeks leading up to December 1st , a row of red ribbons (pictured above) are affixed to the church fence serving as a dramatic and hopeful reminder of the continuing need for leadership in the fight against the AIDS and HIV.
If you wish to help remember a loved one, you must provide the name(s) of the person(s) to staugustinegay(at)gmail(dot)com or leave the information in the Rectory’s mail slot in an envelope marked “Ribbon Project.” Names inscribed on the ribbons will be read aloud at the World AIDS Day Service on December 1st.
At this event, there will be music by Ann Beirne and speakers including, Council Member Brad Lander of the 39th Council District. One church member will be bringing latkes (because the event falls on the first day of Hannukah). A reception will follow.
