"Our annual Supporters Day celebration is a tribute to one of my best students, Brother Charles Riley, a devoted volunteer of the Institute's tutorial program. The tutorial program was renamed the Charles Riley Tutorial Program in his honor in 1997. February 17 is Brother Charles' birthday. Supporters Day is a manifestation of Brother Charles' best attributes and contributions to the Institute when he was alive," states Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
