Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine

June 17 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

Seven years ago, on June 17, 2015; Dylan Roof studied scripture with a room full of faithful members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. At the end of the Bible Study as they bowed their heads in prayer, Dylan began shooting at them murdering nine people. Dylan was baptized in the ELCA. As part of the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, voting members adopted a resolution designating June 17 as a commemoration of the martyrdom of the Emanuel 9.

As an ELCA clergyperson, The Rev. Janell Monk has led a Commemorative Prayer service remembering the Emanuel 9 the last two years and invites you to join her this year. The Rev. Ernestein Flemister will share a reflection.

The Zoom service is hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church, Ashland, Oregon on Friday, June 17 at 7:00 p.m. To join the service, please use the Zoom link:
