Will you join us in affirming God’s love to all this June? Three churches of The Diocese of West Missouri have taken the lead on The Episcopal Church’s presence at Kansas City Pride 2022 – inviting churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas to join as well.
If your church is doing the work of intentionally embracing the ministry and witness of LGBTQ+ persons, you are invited to join us! We will host a booth at the Festival Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Theis Park (the big lawn south of the Nelson Art Gallery) and march in the parade Saturday morning.
We need your friendliest faces, swinging-est banners, and welcoming literature to extend this love.
The Kansas City-based churches taking the lead are St. Andrew’s, St. Mary’s, and St. Paul’s. If you are interested in helping with/marching in the parade, check out the Pride Parade information on St. Paul’s website, which is updated weekly, or email Heidi Carter, at St. Paul’s. If you would like to be involved with the booth at the Festival, you may sign up to volunteer here, or contact Jean Long at St. Andrew’s.
If you are unable to participate in person, you are welcome to attend the Pride Parade Prep work night at St. Paul’s Wednesday, June 8 starting at 6 p.m. We appreciate everyone’s support via prayers, and also financial donations, which you may send to St. Paul’s. Please clearly mark donations as for The Episcopal Church’s Presence at Pride. Thank You!
