St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church is thrilled to be sharing a special one day, community-wide showing of the Vermont Holocaust Memorial’s exhibit:
“From Generation to Generation …We Are Here! Honoring lives lost and stories of survival”
Sunday September 3rd from 11am – 2pm.
Following the exhibit’s opening at JCOGS (Jewish Community of Greater Stowe,) and as a part of the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition and Community for Human Rights and Dignity, St. John’s is proud to be carrying forward the important lessons learned from the Holocaust. They are committed to encouraging and supporting a community in which we are all one.
Knowledge is the most powerful tool in the fight against ignorance, intolerance and fear. By sharing stories of survival, and teaching their invaluable lessons learned, the Vermont Holocaust Memorial (a 501(c)(3) charitable organization) envisions a time when prejudice, bigotry and hate are replaced by respect for all. Additional information can be found on the organization’s website: holocaustmemorial-vt.org.
St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church is a community of faith located at 1994 Mountain Road (at the crossroads of the Mountain Road and Luce Hill Road), Stowe, Vermont. For more information about St. John’s, please visit the website: stjohsinthemountains.org.
