On Monday, March 25 at 10:30 am Eastern, more than 20 Episcopal bishops from throughout the church will lead hundreds of clergy and lay people in praying the Stations of the Cross in Washington, DC, as they process along Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House to the U. S. Capitol to challenge violence, especially the epidemic of gun violence that claims so many thousands of American lives each year. Read the full release.
Many of the bishops participating in the event are part of Episcopalians Against Gun Violence, an ad hoc group of bishops, clergy and lay people of Episcopalians who are working, collectively and individually, to curb gun violence.
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to join in this especially meaningful liturgy and am grateful to the Diocese of Connecticut for sharing this Stations of the Cross service with the wider church. You can find it online here.
Please join me this Holy Week in lifting up prayers for those impacted by gun violence and for our policymakers as they pursue peace.
I wish you a blessed Holy Week.
