May 25th, Remembering George Floyd: 

Episcopal Church's Online Liturgy of Prayerful Commemoration 



May 25 marks the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, which ignited a worldwide racial reckoning. You are invited to join Episcopalians in an online liturgy of prayerful commemoration at 8:00 pm EST.
 
Bishops from six dioceses will lead the liturgy, including a reflection by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, a Prayer of Lament from George Floyd Square in Minneapolis, an “Act of Remembrance” from Ferguson, Missouri, and prayers from Washington, DC.

You are invited to participate virtually with prayers and postings on social media in conjunction with the service.
