We begin at the SsAM parking lot and then walk to Rodney Square. These walks began in response to the murder of George Floyd, but now we are faced with more racially motivated murders than ever before. The recent murders of ten people in Buffalo showed us that things are continuing to escalate. We need to respond! Racial justice is something we feel strongly about! At the end of the walk, people are invited to the Chris White Gallery, at the corner of 7th and N. Shipley Streets, for refreshments and what we hope will be meaningful conversation. SsAM is one of several churches that sponsor these walks. Click here to learn more about these prayerful Walks for Justice and Peace.

The “Boysie” Lowery Living Jazz Residency is a two-week artist residency created to provide space to grow for the next generation of jazz artists who are both composers and performers. Program sessions are led by a faculty who are selected from the rich pool of talented music professionals who reside, teach and work in the mid-Atlantic region. The 24-hours-a-day immersive environment of this two-week residency encourages creative exploration and exchange between the participants. Daily activities include workshops, rehearsals, composing, performance opportunities, and master classes with some of the top players in jazz today.
The residency culminates in final performances at the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival. The goal of the Boysie Lowery Living Jazz Residency is to give participants an opportunity to focus on their passion for jazz through an intense two week residency program. Participants are introduced to a variety of harmonic, melodic, sonic, and textural possibilities, and then asked to apply them to new compositions that will be played in rehearsal for immediate feedback. Students are constantly able to collaborate on new and old works, allowing them to begin to develop a sound of their own. The goal is not to mold students into clones of past jazz legends, or the faculty, but to give them a space where they can define their own unique sound. SsAM is honored to be the location of this exceptional program again this year. The residency is June 5-19 and is coordinated by Jonathan Whitney and his team.

Memorial Service for Peggy Shane in the Fall of 2022
As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives and that at the last he will stand upon the earth. After my awaking, he will raise me up; and in my body I shall see God. I myself shall see, and my eyes behold him who is my friend and not a stranger.
Would you like to help provide resettlement services for Afghan newcomers? (also, immigrants from Ukraine)
The Episcopal Migration Ministries has a new program, an emergency resettlement initiative that allows the U.S. to build capacity to welcome and resettle Afghan newcomers through community sponsorship, a model of resettlement where groups of individuals commit to directly providing resettlement services. Thousands of Afghan newcomers remain at U.S. military bases where they are being temporarily housed and many have been waiting for several months for communities to prepare for their arrival. There is an urgent need for Sponsor Circles to support the move of Afghan newcomers off bases and into welcoming communities in the coming weeks. Click here to learn how you can play a critical role.
