We are partners in Christ's ministry of reconciliation.
From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation." 1 Corinthians 5:16-18 NRSV
We invite you into these opportunities to partner with other parishioners in our common pursuit of reconciliation and social justice.

Legacy and Justice Pilgrimage to Montgomery, AL
From police shootings to incarceration statistics, and from school accessibility to poverty rates, racism is a present reality that plagues our city and our country. Our faith calls us to confront and confess our failures and fears in order that we may be reconciled one with another. Please consider joining us on our next pilgrimage to the Legacy and Justice Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama. Established by the Equal Justice Initiative, these sites give Americans an opportunity to learn and respond to some of the racial injustice of our collective past.
