Racial Reconciliation Team

Racial healing is a continuing priority within the Episcopal Church in Vermont and is an integral part of being a Christian. We support the mandates of the wider Episcopal Church regarding  racial reconciliation and, in response, have hosted various diocesan initiatives over the years aimed at exploring diversity and nurturing cultural competency. One of these efforts includes our current Racial Reconciliation Team made up of volunteers throughout the diocese who have a passion and calling for leading our local efforts.

The members of the Racial Reconciliation Team are listed below. If you are interested in getting involved or have a question about the Team’s activities, please contact the co-facilitators.
