St. Agnes and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Commemorate 44th Anniversary of Guyana

EAST ORANGE, NJ – St. Agnes and St. Paul’s Episcopal (Anglican) Church will commemorate the 44th anniversary of the Republic of Guyana during their Annual Guyana Interfaith Service on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. at 206 Renshaw Ave.

This annual event is specially organized to set aside time to pay homage to the nation of Guyana. The celebration is co-sponsored with the Consulate of Guyana (New York, New York) and the theme is “Having Only Positive Expectations” – (HOPE). The guest speaker will be Rev. Vibert Chance of the Church of Abundant Life in East Orange.

The Rev. Esar Budhu, Rector of St. Agnes and St. Paul’s Episcopal (Anglican) Church has spearheaded this event for over twenty years. He has organized the planning committee and hosted the event over that period. One of the objectives of the event is to reach out to other religious leaders of the Hindu and Muslim faiths to ensure that the service and reception are interfaith and multicultural. This year’s planning committee includes Pandit Suresh of Jersey City and Rev. Ingrid Chance of East Orange. It is expected that an enthusiastic response will come from other religious leaders in the area, as well.
