Traveling the Jesus Movement and Hurricane Recovery
Traveling the Jesus Movement, a new periodic video series, chronicles the visits of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry throughout the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. The inaugural Traveling the Jesus Movement illustrates a witness to the hurricane recovery and chronicles the visit by Presiding Bishop Curry to the dioceses of Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.
Absalom Jones and the Episcopal Historically Black Universities and Colleges
The Presiding Bishop invites Episcopalians “to deepen our participation in Christ’s ministry of reconciliation by dedicating offerings at observances of the Feast of Absalom Jones to support the two remaining Episcopal Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCUs): St. Augustine’s University in Raleigh, NC, and Voorhees College in Denmark, SC.”
Donations to the HBCUs will provide much needed help to: offer competitive scholarships and financial aid; attract and retain exceptional faculty; support cutting-edge faculty research; install new and upgraded technology campus-wide; provide state-of-the-art classroom and athletic equipment.
DACA / Immigration
The Episcopal Church is committed to welcoming the stranger and advocating for a humane and proportional immigration system. For more than a century The Episcopal Church has been engaged in the ministry of welcoming immigrants, walking with them as they begin their new lives in our communities and advocating for immigration policies that protect families from separation, offer meaningful access to citizenship, and respect the dignity of every human being.
