On October 27, Senior Bishop Thomas L. Hoyt, Jr. was called from his earthly home to his Heavenly reward.

We ask that you keep Mrs. Hoyt, the family and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in your prayers to strengthen them in this loss of one who knew God for His perpetual goodness to us.
The Homegoing Celebration for Bishop Thomas Hoyt will be Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 11 am at the Cramton Auditorium at Howard University – 2455 Sixth St, NW, Washington DC. Viewing will be at the Auditorium from 9 am until time of service.
