In his nearly 30 years as Minister of King's Chapel, the Reverend Henry Caner presided over the chapel during a critical era of the church's history. Little did he know, however, that his tenure would end abruptly amidst the American Revolution and pave the way for religious revolution within the church. In observance of Evacuation Day on March 17, this virtual program will discuss narratives of King's Chapel members who fled Boston as Loyalist refugees in March 1776.
Join History Program Director Faye Charpentier on Zoom to learn more about what this historic event meant for members of this church community and for a special look at the life, legacy, career, and controversies of King's Chapel's last Anglican minister, Rev. Henry Caner.
This program is free and open to the public. Donations appreciated. Please register in advance via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link.
