Peace and Justice Education Event: Voices of the Elders: Stories of African Americans in Delaware
December 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thursday, December 15
7 p.m. | Zoom
With the Reverend Canon Lloyd S. Casson, Rector Emeritus of The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew
A native Delawarean, Canon Casson served for 10 years as the rector of the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, a unique parish formed out of the consolidation of two historic Episcopal churches in Wilmington, one with a predominantly white membership and the other predominantly black. As the chief pastor, Canon Casson provided spiritual and administrative leadership to this new congregation, which continues to be an instrument of reconciliation and diversity in our community. This is a unique opportunity to hear Rev. Casson share his oral history with archival images that highlight his experiences and then join us in conversation. Hosted by Westminster’s Peace & Justice Work Group.
