Mr. Riley Temple serves as the Collection Growth Specialist for the African American Episcopal Historical Collection at the Bishop Payne Library at VTS. Mr. Temple will speak about his work with this important collection, share some of the stories he has learned about our history here in Washington, and talk about how St. Augustine’s can do the important work of recording our own history.

St. Augustine’s Mission:
We are a community guided by the Holy Spirit, seeking to show God's love for all, since we know that "Christ will come again when the Christ in me sees the Christ in all of us."
St. Augustine’s Vision:
Guided by Jesus Christ, filled by the Holy Spirit, and with courage, curiosity, and creativity—we will reflect God’s love and grace in worship, study, service, and fellowship by honoring, empowering, feeding, and welcoming the whole community in all its beauty and diversity.
Welcoming the Kingdom of God means opposing white supremacy and racism in all their forms. St. Augustine's is committed to building a racially just society and combatting racism both in our society and within ourselves, by cultivating a genuinely anti-racist Christian congregation.
We affirm the complete equality of all people, including members of the LGBTQ community, who, like all of humanity, are made in the image of God are always welcome at St. A's.
