Church Women United invites the public to its celebration of May Friendship Day on Friday, May 1, with a worship program entitled â€œJourney of the Caregiver.”
The program focuses on caregiving as a task entrusted to us by God.
CWU will also present its 2015 Human Rights Award to Anita Ayers Henderlight, founding director of Africa-ELI, which fosters gender equity, improved economic conditions, peaceful development, and strengthened leadership capacity in South Sudan.
The celebration will be held in the parish hall of St. Stephenâ€™s Episcopal Church at 212 North Tulane Avenue in Oak Ridge. Fellowship begins at 11:30 a.m., followed by a brief business meeting and the program at noon. A potluck lunch will be held afterward. Please bring something to share.
Reservations are appreciated, but not required.
