A Spring Historical Pilgrimage
Saturday April 7
9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Explore the heartland of African American mission in the Diocese of North Carolina at the dawning of the Jim Crow era
Bus will leave from & return to Saint Augustine’s University
During the late 1890s and early 1900s, a network of missions and schools developed to serve the African-American population in the eastern part of our diocese. To trace the story of this remarkable, and now largely forgotten, chapter in our diocesan history, the diocesan History & Archives Committee is conducting a one-day pilgrimage by chartered bus. Starting from Saint Augustine’s University, we will travel past the two early sites of St. Ambrose’, Raleigh, on our way to site stops at St. Matthias’, Louisburg; St. Anna’s, Littleton (with lunch break); All Saints’, Warrenton; St. Luke’s, Warren County/Norlina and St. Cyprian’s, Oxford, before returning to Raleigh.
The cost for the day is $50.00, which includes the coach fare and lunch. Register online via the Diocesan website under “News & Events/Upcoming Events ” or contact Lynn Hoke at 919-602-4305. Registrations will be limited to bus seating. If all seats are filled you will be added to a waiting list, and individuals on the list will be notified if seats open.
