Come join us to for this wonderful Experience!
Richmond Slave Trail is a walking trail that chronicles the history of the trade of enslaved Africans from Africa to Virginia until 1775, and away from Virginia, especially Richmond, to other locations in the Americas until 1865.
It begins at Manchester Docks, a major port in the massive downriver Slave Trade that made Richmond the largest source of enslaved Africans on the east coast of America from 1830 to 1860. The trail then follows a route through the slave markets of Richmond, beside the Reconciliation Statue commemorating the international triangular slave trade, past Lumpkin’s Slave Jail and the Negro Burial Ground to First African Baptist Church, a center of African-American life in pre-Civil War Richmond.

Streaming to Pastoral Center, Richmond and Saint Andrew, Roanoke
This event is planned especially for the catechetical leaders in our diocesan parishes as an opportunity for pastoral and spiritual formation. However, we also encourage the participation of any parish leader/staff who has worked for the church and has grappled with the challenges of parish ministry leadership, especially during the “hard times” of the church. The day ends in hope as we recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit still dwelling in the Church. Click here to register.
