Responding to Report on Sexual Abuse in PA Roman Catholic Dioceses

August 17, 2018

Dear People of God:

In the last several days, our fellow Christians in the Roman Catholic Church here in Pennsylvania have been shaken by the revelations of widespread child sexual abuse committed over many years by clergy in that church and covered up by bishops and other church leaders. The stories detailed in the grand jury report released on Tuesday are horrific and evil, and have shaken to its core the faith of many good people who have trusted in the church their entire lives.

September 28, 2017

The bishops of The Episcopal Church came to Alaska to listen to the earth and its peoples as an act of prayer, solidarity and witness. We came because:

Words from The Church

Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?

In this moment – when the stain of bigotry has once again covered our land, and when hope, frankly, sometimes seems far away, when we must now remember new martyrs of the way of love like young Heather Heyer – it may help to remember the deep wisdom of the martyrs who have gone before.

The year was 1967. It was a time not unlike this one in America.

Open Baptism offered on Pentecost at Holy Cross

May 28, 2017

The service is a significant departure from traditional Christian practice. Holy Cross’ priest, Rev. Carol Carlson, explains, “Adult baptism, which in our case is ‘sprinkling’ with water rather than total immersion, usually takes place after a person has been instructed in the basics of Christian faith and promised to be a faithful member of a church community.  In ‘open’ baptism, we invite people in without asking anything of them except the desire to receive this rite,
