Additional Events

Today, July 9 is Independence Day in South Sudan. This is also the day celebrating the Missouri/Lui partnership at the AFRECS (American Friends of the Episcopal Church of Sudan) booth, and they are hosting a lunch for 60 in the Diocese of Missouri hospitality suite.


  1. Thank you, Beth, for posting this information. Weird as it is, we here in Indianapolis had no idea who would be preaching or celebrating on Monday.

  2. The AFRECS lunch has outgrown the MO hospitality suite and will be in a hotel banquet room, but AFRECS very much appreciates our diocese's willingness to provide the space.
