Pride Weekend at St. Stephen's

Join us this weekend at St. Stephen's to celebrate Pride in the Fargo-Moorhead area.


As part of our on-going ministry to be a safe place where all persons are valued for their full dignity and worth, and living fully into our Baptismal Covenant to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”(The Book of Common Prayer, p. 305), St. Stephen’s will once again be participating fully Pride events throughout the cities. William Weightman is hard at work at this moment on preparing the float for the Pride Parade and St. Stephen’s has a wonderfully prominent ad in the “Pride Guide” that is circulating throughout the Red River Valley.

Our events this weekend include:

Saturday, August 11 – “Pride in the Park” at Gooseberry Park in Moorhead. St. Stephen’s will once again have a table and display. Stop by or volunteer to sit at the table and greet people.

Sunday August 12 – 12:30 pm - Pride Interfaith Service at the United Church of Christ in Moorhead. Fr. Jamie will be one of the participants in the service.

Sunday August 12 – 2:00 pm – Several members of St. Stephen’s will be marching together with our float in the Pride Parade through downtown Fargo.

If you would like participate in the Parade (or would like any other information on the vents of Pride Weekend), please contact William Weightman (weightmanw@gmail.com) for time and meet-up location.

Come along this weekend and show your support and Pride for our Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender brothers and sisters as members of St. Stephen’s.
