The Philadelphia Eleven, Documentary Screening

"In an act of civil disobedience, a group of women and their supporters organize their ordination to become Episcopal priests in 1974. The Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia welcomes them, but change is no small task. The women are harassed, threatened and banned from stepping on church property. 
In this feature-length documentary film, we meet the women who succeed in building a movement that transforms an age-old institution, and challenges the very essence of patriarchy within Christendom."

All Saints Episcopal Church, Frederick is excited to invite you to a screening of The Philadelphia Eleven documentary on
Sunday July 28th 5:00pm.

Doors open at 4:30pm, the film will begin promptly at 5:00pm, and be followed by a panel discussion. The Rev. Angela Furlong will serve as our moderator, and we are glad to welcome Revs. Elaine Prince, Columba Gillis and Lucy Hogan, three of the earliest women ordained in the Episcopal Church to share their stories.

Admission is free, please RSVP with Vickie, if you are interested.
