Transformed by Peace: Liturgy and Fiesta

Church of the Good Shepherd

 

Tuesday, July 4th

3:30 pm ~ Holy Eucharist, with recognition and repentance of our participation in a culture of gun violence

After the liturgy ~ A fiesta celebration of new life through diversity + tours of historic Church of the Good Shepherd

~ Everyone is welcome to attend ~

 
Join us in Hartford at 3:30 pm on July 4th to recognize our role in a society awash with gun violence.  As we celebrate the birth of our nation, let us also repent of our participation in a gun-emphasizing culture.

Following the liturgy, there will be a fiesta-style celebration of new life through diversity, plus optional tours of historic Church of the Good Shepherd.

  • Tours of the historic church built by Elizabeth Colt, widow of firearms manufacturer Samuel Colt — optional, sign-up to be provided at a booth. Tour Guide: Jack Hale, Good Shepherd’s Senior Warden.
  • Multicultural fiesta on the grounds of the Church of the Good Shepherd, to include a DJ playing “Island Music” and booths with food representing the diversity of people in congregations in Hartford.
