Join us on Sunday, August 23 at 11am (immediately following the livestream service) for a forum on Sacred Ground, a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith, to be offered at St. Mark’s beginning in autumn. Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. During this 10-part curriculum we will meet in small groups monthly to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, reflecting on family histories and stories and the narratives that shape our collective American story.

The Episcopal Church developed the Sacred Ground curriculum in 2017, but the timing could not be more relevant today… join us at the forum and learn more.
