A Night of Hope

A desire for wellness, a safe home, and a good education unites us all. Join us to celebrate our parish’s Living Impact in our community.

A Night of Hope

Thursday, October 17
6:30 - 8:30 PM in All Saints' Hall

Our parish has a bold history of creating partnerships to address needs and challenges in our community. Some of our most significant ministries are in the areas of education, mental health, and housing/homelessness.

Please join us for dinner and a special evening to celebrate the Living Impact of these partnerships. 

Leaders of Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, HopeWay, and the newly merged Men's Shelter of Charlotte and Urban Ministry Center will join The Reverend Joan Kilian for an in-depth conversation about how their personal journeys have guided them to do transformational work in our community. 


Meet our Guests

Banu Valledares, Executive Director, Charlotte Bilingual Preschool - Banu shares, "There was a time when I couldn't take care of myself, when I could barely get out of bed. But help always arrived and I knew then that something cared for me deeply. That something wanted me alive. I no longer worry about the little things that are not really important. I do not have as much fear, because I know something is at work larger than me, larger than my capacity to understand." Learn more about Banu »

Liz Clasen-Kelly, Executive Director of the merged Men's Shelter of Charlotte and Urban Ministry Center - For Liz, "One of the great promises of the Gospel is that we serve a Living God. Faith reminds me that we don't have to create, but rather can participate in God's active work in the world today." Learn more about Liz »
