Borderless Grace

November 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - November 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

Border Ministries Summit sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande

The summit will include:

  • a keynote address by the Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
  • speakers from the Episcopal Church and secular agencies that work along the border
  • opportunities for border immersion experiences

The 2,000 miles of border between the US and Mexico is an area of heightened social, political and spiritual importance. Along the border, cultures, economies and families meet and are divided. The border offers the Church an unique opportunity for ministry, and dioceses along the border have each responded. This summit will provide opportunities to share information about border ministries and to build partnerships for future ministries and increase awareness of border issues.

The six dioceses who share the border will share their experiences of ministry. Other interested parties are invited to participate as space allows.
