The Cathedral of St. John the Divine and the Episcopal Diocese of New York will celebrate the life and work of Blessed Absalom Jones on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

Absalom Jones, born a slave in Delaware in 1746, was the first African-American ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church. Having bought his own freedom in 1784, he became a lay minister serving the Black membership of St. George's Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. Absalom Jones was ordained deacon in 1795 and priest in 1802 of the St. Thomas African Episcopal Church.

The Bishop of New York will celebrate the Eucharist, and special guest The Rev. Charles A. Wynder, Jr., Staff Officer for Social Justice, Advocacy Engagement, Reconciliation and Creation Care for The Episcopal Church, will preach. This service is open and welcoming to all, in commemoration of Jones’s life and perseverance against exclusion, intolerance and oppression.
