An Evening with Bishop Joseph Atem

Come and learn more about the Diocese of Renk, South Sudan

Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 4:00 PM

The Partnership for our sister parish, Saint Luke's Church in Renk, South Sudan – consisting of members from Saint Christopher's and Grace Episcopal Churches in Oak Park – is pleased to invite you to Evening Prayer and a Potluck Supper at Grace on Sunday, October 22nd at 4 pm.  The Rt. Rev. Joseph Atem, Bishop of the Diocese of Renk, South Sudan will be our special guest. He will be available to answer any questions about our partnership, and how the civil war in South Sudan is affecting his diocese.

Grace has been in this partnership for a number of years and we have been able to help Saint Luke's in supplying tents, chairs and more recently, a sound system. This is to assist Saint Luke's to become self-sustaining. The money they received for renting out the tents and chairs helped build their church building made of mortar rather than the straw one they had which was destroyed. Also, we have been giving money for the salary of their priest. Click here to sign up to bring food and other volunteer opportunities for the Pot Luck after the prayer service.
