Celebrating The Philadelphia Eleven

Jul 28 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Christ Church Cathedral invites the diocesan community to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Philadelphia Eleven with a special event at 4:30 p.m., Sunday, July 28.

The Philadelphia Eleven is the name given to the first women ordained as priests in the Episcopal Church in 1974. It is also now the title of a documentary film about those women.

The Cathedral will mark the day with a special Evensong featuring music by women composers, followed by dinner and a screening of the film, and finally a panel discussion with the four longest-serving women priests in the Diocese of Missouri. Watch the movie trailer and get more information about the film here.

• 4:30-5:15 p.m. Evensong featuring music by women composers.

• 5:15-6 p.m. Light dinner in Schuyler Hall. Please RSVP for the dinner by July 22 to assure we have enough food.
