Confession, Repentance, and Commitment to End Racism Sunday

 The Episcopal Church in a letter from the Presiding Bishop and the President of the House of Deputies calls on Episcopal congregations to participate in "Confession, Repentance, and Commitment to End Racism Sunday" on Sunday, September 6.  St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Monroe, CT will participate.

The initiative comes from the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church together with the AME Zion and Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) Churches, who are calling on "every church, temple, mosque and faith communion to make their worship service on this Sunday a time to confess and repent for the sin and evil of racism [including] ignoring, tolerating, and accepting racism, and to make a commitment to end racism by the example of our lives and actions."
