Description

Episcopal priests, Rev. Robert Hunter, left, and Rev. Albert Dreisbach, hold communion while conducting a vigil and fast at their protest against the use of St. Philip's Cathedral for the Lovett Baccalaureate. Communion, held twice daily, was their only means of sustenance until after the completion of the services, June 1966.
