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.
