Sanctuary Ministry Meeting: Prayers and Reflections for Racial Reconciliation for Black History Month

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 | 7:30pm

Immigrants of color have suffered through detention and deportation, denials of asylum and family separations more so than their white peers. National data confirm they have suffered disproportionately in this pandemic living in fear for their health, safety, and well-being.

We will hear prayers and reflections from our local partners, with an opportunity for all of us to pray together as we celebrate our shared goal for an immigration system that honors the humanity of all who seek to come to the US, regardless of their color or country of origin.

A statue of Bishop John T. Walker (1925-1989) stands in a niche in our Human Rights Porch. Walker was the first African American Episcopal Bishop of Washington. He oversaw the completion of the Cathedral building, and was an outspoken opponent of apartheid and other human rights abuse.
