Passing Down Wisdom from Generation to Generation

Growing up always has its challenges, but it is made easier when people realize they are not in it alone. In the Latino culture, fifteen is the age at which girls assume adult responsibilities and begin the transition toward becoming women. This transition is celebrated with what is known as a Quinceañera, which begins with a Eucharist in many countries and ends with a reception or party. Spanish-Language Ministries have put together a project to allow women to share their wisdom and help girls prepare for their Quinceañera within our diocese and beyond.

To that end, we have created a website where women can share their wisdom and experience and where girls can learn and grow from it in preparation for their Quinceañera. Suppose you are interested in contributing your wisdom and understanding. In that case, you may do so in English or Spanish in the knowledge that it will be translated and made available in both to be a blessing to girls preparing for their Quinceañeras.

Join us for a day of gathering together and an opportunity to do some much-needed work at Trinity Center. Registration is open and the deadline is April 9th. The cost is $25.

From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference
“From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference” is a campaign inviting Episcopalians and our neighbors to engage in one-to-one listening and sharing across the many differences that separate us. The conversations center on four questions: What do you love? What have you lost? Where does it hurt? What do you dream?

Anyone can join in these life-changing conversations, by engaging one on one, exploring the questions in small groups, and talking with people of different ages and backgrounds. In so doing, we begin to discover how our differences make us stronger as the human family of God.

Here you'll find explanations for each of the questions, suggestions on going deeper, and additional resources to keep your conversations going.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry's Easter Message

“Our work goes on. Our labor for love continues,” Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry said in his Easter 2021 Message, “We will not cease, and we will not give up until this world reflects less our nightmare and more God’s dream where there’s plenty good room for all God’s children. Hallelujah anyhow.”
