Join CAMP Rehoboth for a World AIDS Day service on Friday, December 1 to honor World AIDS Day. This event will begin at CAMP Rehoboth at 5:30 p.m., and attendees will walk over to All Saints’ Church on Olive Avenue for the service. The service will begin at 6 p.m., and a reception will be held immediately following in the parish hall.
Once again, CAMP Rehoboth will host a portion of the AIDS Quilt for viewing at All Saints’ Church, where it will serve as a powerful visual backdrop for the service as we remember the many lives lost to AIDS and reflect on its continued impact today.
Viewing opportunities not only include the service on Friday, but also on:
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m for private prayer and meditation
Saturday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., with a special service with special prayers and music for World AIDS Day at 5 p.m.
Sunday between 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., with services at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Sunday between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. for private prayer and meditation
The service will feature names of those lost to the AIDS epidemic. Submit names below.
The program will showcase performances by a select number of the CAMP Rehoboth Chorus and musician Alicia Mickenberg on viola. The service will be non-denominational.
This year, CAMP Rehoboth’s World AIDS Day commemoration will also include an interpretive art activity. On days leading up to December 1, and on World AIDS Day itself, participants will have an opportunity to create a painted rock that expresses their feelings about HIV/AIDS, love, loss, and hope.
Materials will be provided. Participants can take a seat, meditate for a moment, select, and create your painted rock. Then creations can be taken to a special location of one’s choice. Alternatively, the rocks can be left at CAMP Rehoboth. Later, these special rocks will be transferred to a place of quiet reflection - a temporary meditative garden on the property.
Create a painted rock at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center on the following days and times: Saturday, November 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the CAMP Rehoboth Gallery, and on November 30 and December 1, from 2 to 5 p.m., in the Elkins Archibald Atrium.
