The Historic Church of the Advocate is now accepting applications for volunteer docents to conduct tours of its grand scale architecture, inspiring collection of large and vivid black history murals and the work of Fr. Paul Washington and others who made this church both a sanctuary and strategic center.  Docents act as the bridge between Advocate visitors and this National Historic Landmark to excite others to tell the story central to Philadelphia and national history.

Docent training classes will be held on two Wednesday evenings from 5:30PM-7:30PM, on October 21st and October 28th, at the Church of the Advocate on 1801 W. Diamond Street. There is no cost to attend this program and docents need no prior experience in art, history, or humanities to apply. To be a great docent one should be enthusiastic, open to learn, flexible, and committed.


All interested individuals can contact the office at 215-978-8000 or [email protected]  Applicants must be 18 years and older. Applications to be completed by Monday, October 19, 2015. To learn more about the Church of the Advocate visit our website at
