Sacred Ground: The Episcopal Church's Series on Race, Grounded in Faith

Beginning Monday, May 2, 7:30pm

The Diocese of Long Island invites you this spring to participate in Sacred Ground, the Episcopal Church’s film- and readings-based dialogue series on race. Last year, roughly 100 members of our diocese joined this conversation. Some of their reflections can be found here.

Over ten sessions, small groups representing parishes across the diocese walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism. The powerful online curriculum includes documentary films and readings focusing on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian-Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.

You may choose to meet online or in person, weekly or every other week. The series begins Monday, May 2, at 7:30 pm, with a gathering of all participants over Zoom. After this initial meeting, small groups continue independently over the course of summer, with a reunion held at the Cathedral in the fall.

For more information email Mo. Kate. You may also register directly through the George Mercer School of Theology website. Please note that registration closes on Palm Sunday.
