Pre-Pride-Parade Eucharist & Lunch in the heart of the Village
Sun, June 30, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Stonewall Inn lies in the Episcopal parish of St John’s in the Village, and St John’s offers over twenty World Pride events in the month of June commemorating the events of June 1969 (http://www.stjvny.org/arts-at-st-johns-june).
Prior to the World Pride Parade on 30 June, whose route passes St John’s and the Stonewall Inn, St John’s offers a Choral Eucharist with full choir, incense, homily, and Sunday lunch in the beautiful St Benedict’s Courtyard. This places worshipers in the ideal location for viewing the Parade on 7th Avenue. Those marching in the Parade are also thus well positioned for gathering at their walk-off positions.
St Benedict’s Courtyard remains open for the rest of the day, with cold drinks, wi-fi, shade, and quiet, as a place of peace and respite from the hurly-burly of International Pride.
When arriving by Subway (the 1, 2, 3; the A, C, E: the L; the PATH; etc) be sure to exit a Subway station west of 7th Avenue.
