When:
October 15th, 2021 at 9:00 am
Where:
St. Paul's Episcopal Church
815 E. Grace Street

St. Paul’s has joined the Mending Walls project as a sponsor and partner to support one of our 2021 Lenten Speakers Hamilton Glass, his team and this important work of imagination and reconciliation in our city.

In addition to supporting the city-wide vision and activity of the Mending Walls project, St. Paul’s has an exciting opportunity to add to our own continuing story and serve as one of their temporary public art sites.

During the weekend of October 15th-17th, the Mending Walls team will bring together local artists from different cultural backgrounds to our St. Paul’s grounds to transform plywood panels and canvas into works of art. The goal of the event is to bring more attention and awareness to the inequities of racism along with inspiring more people to get involved in the conversation.

  • You are invited to show up at any time throughout the weekend from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., to visit and watch the artists work on their public art piece.
  • Ribbons of Hope Installation | This is an opportunity to write a hopeful message of solidarity for our community on a ribbon and tie it onto the Church’s Sanctuary fence. Yellow ribbons will be used for this installation, as Yellow is associated with hope and can be seen in some countries when yellow ribbons are displayed by families who have loved ones at war. The hope is a display of ribbons around the church filled with the voices of hope for our community. As people attend the 3-day art event to see the artwork from the artists come to life, ribbons and markers will be provided for all who attend and would like to participate and write their message of hope.

Join us Saturday, October 16th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a guided walk on Richmond’s Slave Trail. This walk is a kind of pilgrimage that will be led for St. Paul’s by the Rev. Ben Campbell and Rev. Charles Williams, head of the Office of Black Catholics.

  • The 2 ½ hour walk closes with reflection and conversation over box lunches at Capitol Square. The Richmond Slave Trail is a nearly 3-mile walk that runs from the Manchester Docks, where enslaved Africans both entered and left Virginia, to Robert Lumpkin’s Slave Jail and the site of the hanging of Gabriel, who attempted to complete America’s half-revolution in 1800.
  • The 17 guides and plaques along the way tell the story of Richmond’s first 250 years of history – a history that was buried and hidden from the entire city until the first decade of the 21st century.
  • NOTE: The Slave Trail Walk is appropriate for 6th Graders and older youth, but not for younger children.
  • You will need to be able to walk 3 miles and go up and down steps.

Meet at the church at 9:00 a.m. A van will take us from the church to the beginning of the Slave Trail and then back. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water bottles and snacks. Box lunches will be provided by St. Paul’s. Registration is required for this event with a limit of 20 people.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. Currently Full. Please e-mail Rev. Gwynn Crichton to be put on the waitlist. We plan to offer another walk and discussion at another time in the future.

St. Paul’s is co-hosting with Second Presbyterian Church a Faith on Tap Series that meets monthly online through Zoom. Faith on Tap is an opportunity for people to gather with their beverage of choice and discuss topics with one another through a faith-based lens.

When: Thursday, December 10th @ 5:00 p.m.

For our final “Faith on Tap” of the year, we will be learning about the Insight Garden Program. Insight Garden Program helps transform the lives of incarcerated people through cultivating gardens in prison yards and other property. The gardens provide a sense of connectedness to Creation, their fellow inmates, and to the Creator. Many walls have come down and the men who participate start to see that they can create friendships and work together across demographic lines. Come hear about this amazing program!
