“Man Up” March in St Augustine

The Sons of Allen is a ministry created for men, both clergy and lay, which will seek to address the needs for distinctive ministries to men, who are faced with spiritual, social, political, and psychological challenges, to equip men to follow the example of Andrew (John 1:41-42) who brought Peter to Jesus; to encourage men to emulate the resolute and redemptive spirit of Richard Allen, our revered, ancestral patriarch who in negotiating for his freedom with slave master Stokely Sturgis, negotiated freedom for his unnamed brother as well; to encourage men to implement ministries modeled by our founder, Richard Allen as he sought to meet needs in his community.

A “Man Up”march by the 11th Episcopal District was held in St Augustine on Saturday May 20th, the starting point for the march was at the St Paul AME Church, the goal of the march was to support peace and also male accountability in family, community, and health.
