St. John’s Bridge Priest the Rev. Dr. David Killian will receive the 2019 Spirituality and Justice Award on Sunday, April 28 during the 10:30 am Holy Eucharist at All Saints Parish, 1773 Beacon Street in Brookline. The award is given each year to a person whose deep spirituality is expressed in work for social justice. The Award was given over the years to Bishop Desmond Tutu, Marian Wright Edelman, and Dr. Paul Farmer. As the second-longest serving rector in the 125-year history of All Saints Parish from 1992 to 2012, David established the Ruah Interfaith Spirituality Institute that organized lectures, seminars and retreats that attracted Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and others to deepen their own spirituality and encounter spiritual practices in faiths other than their own. As President of the Brookline Interfaith Clergy Association he worked with spiritual leaders of all faiths on issues of social justice. In 2010 the Ruah Spirituality Institute merged with Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries (CMM), where David is today president of the Board. CMM, established in 1966, is the oldest interfaith social justice organization in the greater Boston area. CMM works to reduce youth violence in crime-prone communities, promote affordable housing in Boston and provide leadership training for youth and adults of different faiths. All are invited to this celebration. A reception will follow the worship service. For more information, please click here.
