TELLING THE STORY OF OUR DIOCESE

Bishops United Repudiates Christian Nationalism, Systemic Racism
Bishops United Repudiates Christian Nationalism, Systemic Racism
As Christians, we must work actively to dismantle the systemic racism that is part of our country’s founding narrative and that continues to fuel mass shootings and urban gun violence today. We must insist that both our fellow Christians and our elected leaders repudiate white supremacy and white nationalism and embrace humane immigration policies that follow God’s command and the Biblical imperative to welcome the stranger in our midst.

Adventure camp revived at Camp Claggett this summer

This summer, the Claggett Center is reviving a much-loved summer tradition in Adventure Camp, July 21-26! Adventure Camp is an opportunity for campers completing grades 4-8 to explore God’s creation with extended high ropes activities, hikes, river trips, bike trips, and wilderness skills instruction, culminating in a one-night backpacking trip. Campers will be led in worship and faith formation by Claggett’s beloved counselors, as they explore the mountains and rivers of Frederick County in a small, intimate group.
