Mark World AIDS Day in Park Slope with a candlelight service and memorial ribbon project at the St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church.

One of two Roman Catholic churches in Brooklyn that also has an active gay ministry, the church have a performance from NYC OUTLOUD, a group of choral musicians dedicated to promoting tolerance and acceptance of GLBT and all people through song, as well as display the work of Maureen Mullen in the exhibition “Preparation Series,” which chronicles the artist’s experience supporting someone beloved to her as he made the journey through AIDS.

If you have a loved one who has died of AIDS, mail, hand-deliver or e-mail (to staugustinegay@gmail.com) the church to have the name read outloud during the prayer service that day. As part of the church’s ongoing Ribbon Project, it is their hope that the red ribbons bearing the names of loved ones who have died of AIDS which line the iron fence surrounding Saint Augustine Roman Catholic Church, will serve as a stark and reverent reminder of the continued need to improve AIDS/HIV education, support all who live with HIV and AIDS as we press for a cure.

Ann Citarella, Sister of Charity, one of the founders of the Gay and Lesbian Catholic Ministry at St. Francis Xavier Church in Manhattan, and Reverend Doctor Daniel Meeter, pastor of Old First Reformed Church in Brooklyn will speak.

The event is December 1 at 7 p.m. St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church is located at 116 Sixth Avenue. For more information, call 718-783-3132.
