We celebrate World Aids day on the 1st of December each year, and this year, we had a programme and talk prepared by Kene Esom, a Human Rights Lawyer and parishioner. The talk and discussion was to educate and cultivate an understanding as well as to lead into a time of discussion, understanding and insight.
The talk brought up many questions in St. Peter's hall after the service on the 30th of November. The destigmatization of HIV/Aids was on the forefront and everyone, young and old walked away having learnt a lot. We should stand together as an enlightened, spiritual and non-judgmental community to prayer for those who are affected and infected with HIV/Aids throughout the month and the year ahead.
