Videos & Highlights from our Dedication Ceremony

On October 15, 2016,  Abington Friends Meeting commemorated the people interred in unmarked graves in our burial ground, especially those of African descent, with a bronze plaque erected at its entrance.  We gathered for a Memorial Meeting for Worship as a tribute to the long-forgotten people of African descent who are buried under our care and stewardship.

Thank you to our videographer, Gordon Lewis, for capturing our event so beautifully!
