Grace Church’s Stations of the Cross for Pandemic Days has been transformed into Prayer Stations for the Election Season.
“Being a Christian is not essentially about joining a church or being a nice person, but about following in the footsteps of Jesus, taking his teachings seriously, letting his Spirit take the lead in our lives, and in so doing helping to change the world from our nightmare into God’s dream.” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
During this contentious election season, it is particularly difficult for us to remember to pause and reflect and listen for the Spirit in the midst of our daily lives. This prayer walk is an invitation to do just that. To pause, center ourselves, and remember that faith and life are not separate. To pray for ourselves, our nation, our leaders, and our world.
The prayer walk begins on our Sanctuary Plaza at the corner of Washington St. and Boulevard. At each station you will find a laminated sheet of reflections and prayers to explore. Stay at each station for a while, then return the prayer sheet and move on to the next station. Or you can access the reflections and prayers online. We hope you will join us!
[Episcopal News Service] As the United States struggles through a time of turbulence and tension, Washington National Cathedral will host a national interfaith prayer service on Sunday, Nov. 1 – two days before Election Day – featuring Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and other spiritual leaders. The service, titled “Holding Onto Hope: A national service for healing and wholeness,” will be livestreamed on YouTube and on The Episcopal Church’s Facebook page in English and Spanish from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. read more

In addition to celebrating Holy Eucharist, we are also able to gather outside on Sunday mornings following worship for a time of study, fellowship, and fun. Our intergenerational Sunday School is open to families and parishioners of all ages! This Sunday, October 25, we’ll continue with Compassion Camp, a look at how compassion helps us be present to one another, so we can better love God, our neighbors and ourselves. We meet in the Grace Center parking lot from 10:10 – 11:00 AM. Children must be accompanied by a parent. Registration is required. Register at the button link below and bring a chair and your mask!
