On Saturday, March 24, Episcopalians from across the country will follow the lead of the students and families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and take to the streets for the March for Our Lives.
“On March 24, the Saturday before Palm Sunday, please do something to stand against gun violence as part of your pilgrimage into Holy Week,” said Bishop Lee, a member of Bishops United Against Gun Violence. “Join me in marching in Chicago, join congregations who are organizing buses to travel to Washington, or join us in spirit if you are unable to march. Wherever you are, please pray that God will console, sustain and heal all whose lives are touched by gun violence, and that God will make evident the work that we are being called to do to end this scourge.”
Opportunities to participate include:
- Joining Episcopalians from around the diocese who will travel to Washington DC
