Louie Crew to Visit Columbus in Two-Day Affair

Trinity, Capitol Square Hosts Episcopal Church Champion for Justice and Inclusion of All

Saturday, October 31 and Sunday, November 1 (All Saints’ Day)

Trinity Episcopal Church on Capitol Square, Columbus, welcomes Louie Crew, a founder of Integrity USA the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group of The Episcopal Church, and longtime General Convention Lay Deputy from the Diocese of Newark (NJ). Louie is excited to return to Trinity, having worshipped with the congregation during the 2006 General Convention, and among the 1,200 people gathered for the Integrity liturgy that Trinity hosted. A Saturday morning event entitled “Singing Songs of the Saints of God: Discipleship, Justice, and Joy,” will allow us to meet and talk with Louie Crew about several important matters concerning The Episcopal Church and our common witness. The sessions begin at 9:30 a.m. in Trinity’s undercroft (3rd and Broad Streets in downtown Columbus), and will conclude with noonday prayer in the chapel.

Dr. Crew will also preach on All Saints’ Sunday, November 1st, at a Celebration of Holy Baptism and Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. A brunch and further conversation with our guest will follow. All are welcome at the Saturday morning gathering, Sunday worship, and the brunch following on Sunday.

A “Meet and Greet” Reception will be held at 6:30-7:30 PM on October 31, 2009 at The Burgundy Room (641 North High Street) with cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres sponsored by IntegrityUSA and Province V Coordinator, The Rev deniray mueller.
