A Message to our Community

"We are all God's children, and we join in the cries of brothers and sisters around the country.  We stand on the side of unwavering love, and affirm the message of our Council of Bishops that we must acknowledge and name the sin of racism, and be unyielding in calling for justice, love, and peace."

Full message from the Council of Bishops:
