St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in downtown Lake Worth announced that Rev. Harry Knox, Director of the Religion & Faith Program of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in Washington DC will preach at the 6 p.m. Worship Service on Saturday, May 13.

“We are pleased that he can join us,” said Deacon Pat Masterman. “He has an impressive track record both as a man of faith and a human rights activist.”

After the service Rev. Knox will speak at the monthly fellowship supper hosted by Integrity Palm Beach which makes its home as part of St. Andrews.

Knox joined HRC in July 2005. A former pastor of a United Methodist Church in Georgia, Knox has held a variety of leadership positions at Freedom to Marry, the Georgia Division of the American Cancer Society, Equality Florida and Georgia Equality.

As executive director of Georgia Equality, Knox was successful in passing the Georgia Anti-Domestic Terrorism Act, the state’s first legislation to include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender categories. He also obtained domestic partnership benefits for employees at Coca-Cola, BellSouth, Delta Airlines, Atlanta Gas Light and Cingular Wireless.

In 2000 Knox was given the Cordle Award for Promotion of God’s Diversity and in 2005 he received the Robert V. Moss Medal for Excellence in Ministry.

The service and Integrity fellowship are open to the public. All are invited to the potluck supper following the service. A covered dish is welcome but not required. St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is located at 100 North Palm Way in downtown Lake Worth, on the northeast corner of Lucerne Avenue and North Palm Way.
