Truth and Reconciliation
February is Black History Month as well as the beginning of Lent. During Lent at All Saints’, there will be a focus on Truth and Reconciliation and Reparations. The Lenten Rice Bowl Collection will benefit the Heritage at Work program at the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, which provides internships in the historical building trades to at-risk students of the Victor Cullen Center in Sabillasville. Adult formation during Lent will host speakers to inform us about the work at Catoctin Furnace, the Heritage at Work program, and other topics related to Truth and Reconciliation. In the spirit of Black History Month, All Saints’ Lenten Rice Bowl project, and Truth and Reconciliation, take some time to watch the Diocesan Trail of Souls event held on November 4, 2023. Journey with the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland Truth & Reconciliation Commission as it also strives to uncover and reconcile the truth about our past.
