Join our Parish's Racial Justice Initiative for a Zoom Compline to celebrate the life and ministry of the Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris on Friday, March 12 at 7:30pm.
Bishop Harris is under consideration for inclusion in the book Holy Men and Holy Women which would set aside a day commemorating her life in the Episcopal Church’s calendar.
