Racial Reconciliation

Sacred Ground

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. It is "a sensitive, prayerful resource that creates space for difficult but respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism."

The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing

The Center for Racial Healing is a place where clergy, lay leaders, and community members can engage in a brave dialogue that leads to real and lasting change. Changed people can create change in our institutions, which in turn becomes change in our society.  The Center, which opened in October 2017, offers a model of prayerful education that forms and reforms individual and
collective action: a defined curriculum, thoughtful training, pilgrimages, and dialogue.
