In the midst of our heartache and anguish over the death of George Floyd, our anger over the continued violence directed toward Black and Indigenous People, and all People of Color, and the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic, we invite you to join us this Sunday, to come together as one diocese, to gather and pray.

We are more than individual churches, we are a diocese – more than 26,000 Christians following the way of Jesus together across Western Washington. On June 7, the Office of the Bishop in the Diocese of Olympia will hold one worship service for our entire diocese. Designed to bring together all Episcopalians in Western Washington to worship as one, connect to each other, and meditate on all the ways we stay connected and stay church, this Sunday will also give our many hardworking clergy, church musicians, and lay volunteers a Sunday of rest in what has been a challenging season.

Join us beginning at 10:30am for a special prelude of music from across the diocese! Then stay after the service for a virtual Town Hall with Bishop Rickel and members of the diocesan staff. Bishop Rickel will share his reflections and take questions from attendees. Don’t miss this time for continued community and a chance to gather as one diocese in Western Washington. Join us for the Prelude and Holy Eucharist via Facebook or YouTube, and join us for the Town Hall via Zoom at the links below.
