A Celebration of the Life for Melinda Jane McCulloch Whalon took place at St. George's Episcopal Church, Harbeson, Delaware, on Saturday, March 11. The Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church was preacher and celebrant. Interment in the churchyard followed immediately after the service.
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry led a weeklong Episcopal Relief & Development pilgrimage to Ghana focused on reconciliation, visiting cities and sites critical to understanding the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and Episcopal Relief & Development partners and programs that work to improve Ghanaians’ lives. Ghanaian church partners and ERD colleagues shared asset-based community development work with the pilgrims in the northern part of the country, and later traveled to the Cape Coast to pray and reflect on the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the work of reconciliation required of all of us as followers of Jesus. An estimated 12 to 25 million Africans passed through Ghana’s ports to be sold as slaves in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
