Michael Conway AIDS Memorial Quilt Display

June 5 - June 9

The Annual Michael Conway Display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt
Each year we host 32-40 panels from the National AIDS Memorial Quilt in honor of Jan Conway’s son, Michael. This year’s event is June 5-9th. Days and times are below.

We are currently working on a variety of programs to go with these dates, like a Blessing of the Quilt. In the meantime, we can begin sharing this sacred event digitally and with flyers to our networks, and seek out potential sponsors for each panel.
(Cost is $175 for one block, 4 panels and includes shipping.)

Be on the lookout for those sign-up sheets coming soon! This is always such a special addition to Pride Week in Birmingham and we are blessed to host such works of love and remembrance.

On May 6th, we are sponsoring Bingo at Birmingham AIDS Outreach as a way of spreading the word and supporting BAO.
WUMC will also hosting the Interfaith Pride Service on Thursday, June 6th. Participants and worshipers will be able to view the Quilt as a part of the serice.
