The Philadelphia Eleven Documentary
Friday, December 1, 2023, 7:00 PM
Holy Comforter will be hosting a free screening of the new video, The Philadelphia Eleven, about the timely and daring 1974 ordination of the first eleven women priests in the Episcopal Church. Our event will be on Friday evening, December 1, 2023, beginning with hors d’oeuvres from 6-6:45, video from 7-8:30, followed by a brief discussion. Rev Dr Carter Heyward, who was confirmed at Holy Comforter and is one of the original Eleven, will be with us. We plan for this to be a time of celebrating our women priests and deacons, and to acknowledge what it has taken for them to get where they are. Registration is requested at the link to come soon. For more information, contact [email protected].
The screening will be open to any and all who want to attend, and information will be sent to all of the Charlotte Episcopal churches. The video is being shown at churches around the country, and at the present, this will be the first showing of it in Charlotte and only the 3rd in North Carolina.
