TELLING THE STORY OF OUR DIOCESE

Holy Week and Easter at Home
Holy Week and Easter at Home

To keep us all safe this Holy Week, we are offering formation and worship resources for you to celebrate Holy Week at Home as a supplement to participating in livestreamed worship. These are prayers and activities that can be done in the home or neighborhood (following safe outside distancing and crowding protocols). We hope that everyone can take advantage of this opportunity to ritualize our faith more deeply in our homes.

Stay calm – Stay connected – Stay church – a Message from Bishop Sutton

Even during this time when we should be staying at home as much as possible for the health and safety of everyone, “walking in this valley” still means finding ways to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, reach out to the lonely, protect the children and the elderly, and care for the sick. This is the diaconal ministry to which we are being called to focus our energies on in this troubled time.

ENCOUNTER THE STORY

From the Archives: Yellow Fever in Baltimore

From the Archives: Yellow Fever in Baltimore

The scourge of Yellow Fever descended upon Baltimore numerous times in the past centuries, two of the worst outbreaks occurred in 1794 and 1800. Hardest hit was always Fells Point, where sailors, laborers, tradesmen and their families lived. With a fast-growing population of about 15,000, during the 1794 epidemic, up to 25 Baltimoreans died each day.

BELONG TO A COMMUNITY OF LOVE

Nightwatch 2020, for Episcoposse, was Divine
Nightwatch 2020, for Episcoposse, was Divine

During lunch, I was able to make connections with people I would have never been able to talk to, which honestly was the theme of the entire trip. Whether I was on the bus, or during the scavenger hunt, or stopping in a souvenir shop on the street buying my 106th hat, I was able to see people I had never met before and become good friends with them. I was also able to strengthen bonds that I had with my friends. Overall, I think that Nightwatch was a great experience where I was able to grow more as both a Christian and a person.

Happening #13 Faith Breaks Free!
Happening #13 Faith Breaks Free!

Happening, while it is only one weekend, has the ability to change your relationship with not only the people around you, but your relationship with Christ. By listening to other people’s faith stories and talking about discussion questions in small groups, I began to realize how much God’s presence is in my everyday life—I just had to take a second and feel Him.
