Keeping this festival day has been one of DeKoven’s longest and most popular traditions.  For the last few years, the Sunday nearest the day itself has been kept with a festive Evensong.   Reception and dinner will follow for those who would like to stay. 

 

James DeKoven was Racine College’s second president, and by far its most influential. In witness to his service to the church and his life of exceptional

holiness, James DeKoven was named to the official calendar of the Episcopal Church as “blessed” and a specific day set aside in his honor. 

 

“We hope many will join us in honoring a true saint of Wisconsin, and of North America,” invites Max Dershem, executive director.
