Womens march connecticut jan 21 2017On January 21, 2017, in solidarity with the 200,000+ in Washington, D. C., women and allies from across Connecticut are invited to gather on the north steps of the Capitol Building in Hartford for a rally at 1 p.m., providing a local option (a "Sister March") for those who cannot travel to D.C. that day. The principle for this march is to make a public statement honoring EVERY voice that upholds dignity, unity, and equality for all.

Episcopal Church clergy women and lay women, and their male allies, who are attending Women's March in Hartford are invited to gather at Christ Church Cathedral at 11:30 a.m. for prayer and conversation before marching together to the Capitol Building for the Sister March. 

All ordained persons are encouraged to wear cassocks. Parking is available at the MAT garage and will be validated at the Cathedral. 

A group of clergy women meeting with Bishop Laura Ahrens on January 12 decided to offer this prayer and conversation opportunity for Episcopalians across ECCT before the march. It is yet another way in which our Cathedral is serving as a catalyst for apostleship.
