Courageous Conversations: Bishop’s Statement on sexual assault and trauma

Bishop of Washington Mariann E. Budde recently shared a powerful statement about sexual assault and trauma, and her view of the Episcopal Church’s role in healing wounds and fostering a more positive culture around this issue:

For the sake of our daughters and sons we will exercise every means available to us to help make for them a better world: through prayer and spiritual support; education and community engagement; witness and protest when necessary; legal action and advocacy; and exercising our most basic civic duty of voting in every election.

Grace families, if you want to talk, our Head of School Jen Danish would like to hear from you. Bishop Budde also invites families to reach out to her directly.
