Absalom Jones



Everyone is welcome to attend the Celebration of Blessed Absalom Jones, the first African-American ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church, at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine (W. 112th Street and Amsterdam Avenue) on Saturday, February 11 at 10:30 a.m.  This Diocesan Service is a festive way to connect with other churches in the Diocese and to honor the hard-won triumph of a holy man of faith despite the incredible racial prejudice and bigotry of late 18th century-early 19th century America.
