KC Pride 2023 is just around the corner. The Episcopal Church will be present at the three-day Festival, marching in the parade together and hosting a Pride Mass that Saturday morning. All churches are welcome to join us and make our voices heard. We need volunteers to help share God’s love and invite others to join the Episcopal Church in proclaiming the Gospel. Please share this with your communities as soon as possible. Thank you.
Pride Festival: Fri-Sun June 9-10-11
The Diocese of West Missouri will be hosting a booth for festival goers in the Sponsors’ Tent throughout the festival. Individuals are welcome to sign-up to be a booth host, and to swing by and say hello if you’re at the festival. Churches are also invited to sponsor giveaways and provide beautiful, welcoming literature to distribute to visitors.
