Forums in March
Women have played a leading role in the Christian faith from the very beginning, yet their role is too often overlooked and their voices too often go unheard. On Sunday mornings throughout March, in conjunction with Women’s History Month and the meeting of the Consultation on the Status of Women at the United Nations, St. Bart’s features leading women’s voices within the Church and the academic world as our guest speakers at The Forum at 10 am and preachers at our 9 am and 11 am services of Holy Eucharist.
