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.

Several years ago, some controversy arose over whether Bishop Whittingham actually owned a slave. William Rollinson Whittingham was Bishop of Maryland from 1840-1879, and a native New Yorker. He was an adamant Unionist during the Civil War, but his views on slavery were complicated.

Christmas around the Diocese of Maryland

Christmas around the Diocese of Maryland

Several months into the pandemic, we began to realize that, like during Holy Week and Easter, we wouldn’t be able to meet in our churches for Christmas. Yet our congregations stepped up and kept the creative energy flowing, despite the fatigue brought on by such a challenging year. We are a community of love. We worshipped together and made offerings of what we had to give.

Our partners at Brady: United to Prevent Gun Violence and March for Our Lives have put together an excellent toolkit highlighting the essential link between voting rights and our country’s ability to enact popular and sensible gun safety legislation

St. Margaret’s takes unusually somber approach to All Saints’ Day, honoring the nation’s crisis
St. Margaret’s takes unusually somber approach to All Saints’ Day, honoring the nation’s crisis

For several years, St. Margaret’s Church of Annapolis has held All Saints services joyously with a good, old-fashioned Dixieland Mass, singing songs like “Shall We Gather at the River” and “When the Saints Go Marching In” led by a Dixieland group of musicians in the style of a New Orleans funeral. But this year was different. With more than 230,000 U.S. deaths from COVID-19 and more cases diagnosed every minute, it was hard to imagine a service celebrating “going home” that did not acknowledge the ongoing crisis.

Bishop Sutton’s Address to the 236th Diocesan Convention

I am so proud of this Church for committing some of its financial resources to building up impoverished black communities. Is it going to hurt us? Yes, and it ought to. It’s in recognition of our collective complicity in contributing to that impoverishment.  I had nothing to do with enslaving persons. “I’m not guilty of that, but I have a responsibility. I didn’t have anything to do with the wiping out of the first peoples, Native Americans, but it’s left to me and my generation to do something about that.
