Diocesan Prayer Vigil for Racial Healing

As part of our commitment to Become Beloved Community, on June 19, 2020, the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast held a prayer vigil organized by the Commission on Racial Justice & Reconciliation with the intention of offering a time of lament, prayer, witness and hope for our world; and to give voice against the sin of racism.
