Leading into Holy Week

Whether you’ve registered for our in-person outdoor services on Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday (The Great Vigil of Easter), or you plan to attend our virtual services, we invite every household to take part in praying the Holy Week liturgies this year. You also can find a printed bulletin with all of our Holy Week liturgies. While the COVID-19 pandemic may have separated us physically for a season, we have never been separated spiritually, either from each other, or from God. As you journey with us from the celebration of Palm Sunday through the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday, may these words from our liturgy bless and keep you this week:

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

— The Very Reverend Gray Lesesne, D.Min.

Dismantling Racism in the Age of Pandemics

SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 9AM TO 4PM

The Diocese of Indianapolis will welcome Dr. Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, to present \”Dismantling Racism in the Age of Pandemics\” in a Zoom workshop. This gathering will explore how the sin of racism still pervades our society, despite policy changes and racial integration. Seeking to increase racial understanding, healing and reconciliation, we\’ll examine how racism has become embedded in our culture, structures, and unconscious biases. We will also examine our own role in maintaining systems of privilege. Come prepared to learn and to engage in dialogue with fellow participants.
