The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing is a church-wide resource which is primarily supported by the Diocese of Atlanta and The Episcopal Church, charged with providing tools and experiences to engage in racial healing, dismantling racism, and other social injustices in our communities. We need your assistance in supporting the ongoing efforts of the Center’s work and in helping to make it more visible and viable in your parish.
I am asking you to join The Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing and its Staff by:
- placing the Center logo with a link to its webpage on your website;
- sharing a few words about the Center in your weekly announcements; encourage you parishioners to subscribe to the Center’s e-newsletter, which offers engaging information on its various activities including webinars highlighting key cultures, bringing awareness to racial issues and ways to address them, impactful programs, a blog and podcast with Dr. Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Center, and inspirational quotes;
- visiting the Center’s website to tap into its many resources; and exploring with us the possibility of becoming a formal partner with the Center.
- Additionally, the Center’s website includes a page titled “The Work of the Church” where you can find ideas from parishes that have implemented programs to dismantle racism, and where you can share the work of your parish.
If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas, or would like more information on The Absalom JonesEpiscopal Center for Racial Healing, feel free to reach out to them directly here. I thank you in advance for joining me in supporting the Center and its works as part of our spiritual formation.
