Episcopal City Mission's 2019 Annual Celebration will be held the evening of June 11 at Boston University's George Sherman Union, 775 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. The reception will begin at 5:30 pm with dinner and program to follow. The theme for this year's Annual Celebration is Disrupting Hope. We will focus on the importance of finding hope in the now, through taking action in a place rather than focusing on a lofty intangible hope that will manifest in the future. The keynote speaker is Dr. Miguel De La Torre, professor of Social Ethics and Latin Studies at Iliff School of Theology, scholar-activist, author, and ordained Baptist minister. His books include Embracing Hopelessness and The U.S. Immigration Crisis: Towards an Ethics of Place.
