Juneteenth Liturgy & Potluck

June 22 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Black/African American Circle invites you to the 2024 Juneteenth liturgy and potluck BBQ! The worship service will feature poetry, as well as African American spirituals under the direction of Vanessa Bruce and Ryan Ellis, dancing from VCBynum Arts, and drumming from Gansango African Music and Dance. Mixed media art will be on display from local Black artists as well. The Rev. Canon Carla Robinson will be preaching and The Rev. Beverly Tasy will be presiding and has served as our liturgist and artistic director. A special offering will also be taken up in support of the Richard Younge Curates of Color Fund.

After the service, all are welcome to enjoy a potluck BBQ on the Cathedral lawn. Protein will be provided. Beyond good food and conversation, there will be opportunities to learn more about Circles of Color, the PNW Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians, and more. Join us in celebrating freedom and the gifts of our Black/African American community!


June 19 commemorates the end of slavery in the United States and is one of the longest-celebrated African American holidays. Learn more about the history of Juneteenth here and Juneteenth resources for families can be found on Canon Barrie’s blog.
