Anti-Racism

St. David’s Anti-Racism Task Force

St. David’s Anti-Racism Task Force seeks to bring efforts to reckon with racism together in a coordinated, parish-wide way in the areas of organization practice, formation, policy, and history.

Our faith invites us to work for justice, to confront the systems of racism, to look inward and find the sin of racism in ourselves and confess, repent, and amend our lives.

We pray for race relations in our country. We pray for all of those who have suffered injustice, exclusion or violence. We pray for repentance for those who use power and authority to treat others unjustly. We pray you will guide us to amend our hearts and change our world as we strive to respect the dignity of every person. We pray for an end to social violence and destruction, that peace and reconciliation may prevail.

    It is a Christian obligation to vote, and more than that, it is the church’s responsibility to help get souls to the polls.

     -Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

    St. David’s Anti-Racism Task Force encourages everyone to get ready to vote in the November 8, 2022 election by checking:

    1. You are registered
    2. Registration matches your current address
    3. What identification you need to bring to the polls
    4. How to register for vote-by-mail, if eligible.

    All this at texas.gov/living-in-texas/texas-voter-registration/ 

    Let’s make this the parish who votes!

The national Episcopal Church has an initiative called Becoming the Beloved Community. The program is designed to increase Episcopal parish, diocesan, and agency engagement in four primary fields: telling the truth about our churches and race, proclaiming the dream of Beloved Community, practicing Jesus’ way of healing and reconciliation, and repairing the breach in institutions and society.
