Media Release: Episcopal, Lutheran clergy to visit and pray in four Hartford neighborhoods on Holy Tuesday March 31
Next Tuesday, March 31, more than 100 clergy from the Episcopal and ELCA Lutheran churches in Connecticut will visit four neighborhoods in Hartford, engaging in prayer and listening to people they meet talk about the needs of the city and their own hopes and dreams, as part of their annual renewal of ordination vows.
The sites include Capital Community College, Hartford Hospital, Hartford Public Library, and the Manna Feeding Program housed at Christ Church Cathedral. Organizers chose these to recognize them as places that care for, support, and empower people, making a positive impact on the city, and as a way of giving thanks for their good work.
“By visiting these places with our prayer and our presence we both affirm their work, and see possible partnerships and collaboration with those who are about the work of God’s mission, sharing God’s love,” said Bishop Laura J. Ahrens of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, in a letter to clergy.
