Diocese Convention Adopts Resolution #5:
In response to Resolution A123, adopted by the 75th General Convention, the 177th Diocesan Convention adopted Resolution #5 which directs the Commission on Race Relations to develop resources for both parish and diocesan use, to document the role the Diocese played in condoning and supporting slavery, segregation, and discrimination and the efforts undertaken to repair and rectify the same. The Resolution also calls for Prayer for the Holy Spirit’s guidance toward the responses that will lead us to peace, harmony and reconciliation.
