As we announced a few weeks ago, St. Cyprian’s was hosting the 2012 Diocese of Massachusetts-Union of Black Episcopalians’ Annual Absalom Jones celebration. This year’s festival was a joyful time of thanksgiving and celebration. A major part of the celebration is the awarding of the Frederick Douglass Isaacs, Jr. Parish Lay Leadership Award of Merit to representatives of the participating parishes. Here are some pictures taken by Hamel Husbands of this year’s award winners.
