Date: April 22, 2024

Refuge Way of The Cross will be honoring the life and work of Apostle Leroy H. Cannady, Sr. the founder of Refuge Way of the Cross by hosting a special viewing of the completed documentary, 100 Years: A Journey of a Lifetime. The screening of the final installment of the documentary will take place on Saturday June 1, 2024 at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum. 

Produced by Early Light Media, the local production company continues their mission of  insightful storytelling by capturing the second installation of 100 Years:  A Journey of a Lifetime. Part One of the documentary chronicles the life of Apostle Cannady and follows his story by filming in key locations including his hometown, capturing monumental events and delving into his work as a pastor, former presiding Bishop over a national organization and service in leadership. 

This screening will feature part two-the conclusion of the documentary, including interviews from those who have served with him throughout his clergical tenure, conversations with his family and exclusive scenes from The Apostle’s homegoing services in May of 2023. Apostle Cannady’s profound impact is brilliantly captured through insightful conversations, critical discussions and honest glimpses into the day to day of Apostle, leading to his final rest in May 2023. 

This important documentary is a staple to the legacy of Refuge Way of the Cross Church of Christ and the community. Last year’s documentary screening of part one was well received and included attendance from City Council President, Nick Mosby who offered key remarks to Apostle Cannady, thanking him for his work and dedication to the City of Baltimore. 

The  screening of parts one and two of the documentary will be held at the historic Reginald F. Lewis museum in Downtown Baltimore. Community pillars are expected to be in attendance as well as local and state political figures. Suitable for all age groups, admission to the event is $25.
