Dear saints,

I invite you to join us for this year’s Diocesan Ash Wednesday service online when we will celebrate Absalom Jones, February 17, from 7 to 8 PM! Our Preacher will be Rev. Nita Byrd, Chaplain and Dean for Spiritual Engagement at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. The music and liturgy will glorify God in celebration of Blessed Absalom. I promise you; it will be worth gathering around your computer with your loved ones for hope, joy, and inspiration as we prepare for a holy Lent. This will be the first all diocesan liturgy of 2021.

Dear saints,

Yesterday was the Inauguration of our 46th President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris! What a historic moment, when this wonderful and imperfect country took yet another step to live into its promise! The oldest man ever to be inaugurated as President and the first African and Southasian-American woman Vice President took the reigns of government! The cabinet around this Presidency promises to be the most diverse in the history of our nation. We pray for their success and our healing, reconciliation and spirit of hope in the days and months ahead.
