Black History Month at CCS
On February 20, 2023, as part of our recognition of Black History Month, the Centre for Christian Studies hosted an online discussion with Black diaconal ministers and deacons in the United Church and Anglican Church in Canada. Alcris Limongi moderated the conversation, Therese Samuel was tech host, and the panelists included Aldith Baker, Marlene Britton, and Lisa Byer-de Wever.
The following week we hosted an online community celebration of African/Caribbean cultures in Canada. It started with a worship service, followed by choose-your-own breakout rooms where participants could experience and learn about some of the music, cooking, fabrics, storytelling, etc. that are a part of African/Caribbean Canadian heritage. It was a fun time of sharing and connecting.
