Julia Chester Emery Feast Day Celebration

Tuesday, January 9, 2024 at 7pm Eastern time

Register here:

January 9 is the feast day of Julia Chester Emery, founder of the United Thank Offering, and this year we are celebrating the life and ministry of Miss Julia with Kristen Wheeler of Ministry of the Saints: Modern Iconography. She’ll join us to share more about her process of creating the Julia Chester Emery icon, the symbols found in it, and about her research into Miss Julia. Kristen is also hard at work on the UTO History Brochure that we will release at General Convention in 2024, so this is a great time to come and learn, share, and celebrate the life of Saint Julia Chester Emery, without whom UTO would not exist.
