Upcoming Events

Coffee & Conversation: Refugees in Crisis

Sunday, March 26

Alongside Michael Takeo Magruder’s work Lamentation for the Forsaken, a study of the Syrian refugee crisis, which is currently on display at Epiphany as part of the Stations of the Cross exhibition for Station 9 – Jesus Falls for the Third Time, our Coffee and Conversation on March 26 offers a further opportunity to express our solidarity with those who afflicted by this crisis.

In 2015 many French towns agreed to accept refugees from war-torn Afghanistan in response to the request from the French national government. French resident and political activist Kersti Colombant will share in detail her experiences of resettling refugees and the challenges of  helping them to become acclimated in to a new social and economic structure.

Colombant originally hails from Australia, but was a long-time D.C. resident who taught French and English as second languages and retired to France a few years ago.

A Pilgrimage for Art Lovers

“Why have you forsaken me?”

Jesus’ words upon the cross speak acutely to the anguish and alienation felt by many today in America, from immigrants and refugees to religious, sexual, and ethnic minorities.

This unique exhibition—held in 14 locations across Washington, D.C. — will use works of art to tell the story of Jesus’ Passion in a new way, acutely relevant to the plight of America’s disenfranchised.  The Stations weave through religious as well as secular spaces, from the Mall to downtown D.C., and up to the National Cathedral.  Instead of easy answers, the Stations aim to provoke the passions: artistically, spiritually, and politically.

The art on display includes monuments, Old Master paintings, and newly commissioned art installations.  Featured artists include Ndume Olatushani—once falsely imprisoned on death row—and Michael Takeo Magruder, one of the world’s leading artists in digital media, who has created a haunting Shroud of Turin filled with the faces of Syrian refugees.

Visitors can take this tour by downloading the smartphone app, ‘Alight: Art & Sacred.’ The app will serve as your tour guide with podcasts from leading clergy, artists, and scholars, along with maps leading to each of the stations. These items, as well as details on the artists, spaces, contributors, and associated events are available at http://artstations.org or by contacting Communications Manager, Arrien Davison at stationsdc@gmail.com

The exhibition is supported by Cambridge University Interfaith Programme, the Catholic Studies Program at Georgetown University, Rocky Mountain College, Coexist House, the Episcopal Evangelism Society, and Trinity Wall Street.
