36th Annual Pride Interfaith Service

Saturday June 8th, 2013, 10am

Old South Church

Copley Square, 645 Boylston Street, Boston

ALL ARE WELCOME!  Help us share the message that churches still care about the disenfranchised–that Jesus’ vision for our world is one that is open and affirming of all people.  Hancock will be demonstrating our commitment as an Open and Affirming congregation.  This is who we say we are:

Here at Hancock, we figure that if Jesus welcomed everyone, who are we to exclude?  So in 1998, we adopted our Covenant of Welcome, which declares our intent to welcome everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, economic status, sexual orientation or expression, or any handicapping condition.  It does not matter to us who you are, or what you look like, or who you love, or where you’re going.

You can help us create a city, a state, and a country where all are treated equally in our churches, communities, schools and workplaces.  Join us for Boston Pride!  We will be meeting our Hancock Parade Marshals at the Interfaith Service at Old South Church- 10am, handing out Hancock Skittles, and showing our Hancock PRIDE.

Following the Interfaith Service at Old South, Hancock will carry a banner in the Pride Parade led by our fearless leader Paul Shupe!  Read more about parade details on the Boston Pride website here: http://www.bostonpride.org/parade/
