Racial Equity & Justice

Join Us in Allyship and Action

Cries for racial justice swept across the globe in the summer of 2020, emanating from the heart of our diocese. As faithful followers of Jesus, we at Saint Mark’s and in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota commit to joining the Spirit’s work of healing and liberation.

This will be lifelong work, including inner work as individuals, care examination together as a faith community, as well as prayerful examination of the interior work of the cathedral’s supporting ‘systems’. With God’s help, we step forward.


Racial Equity & Justice Working Group

The Racial Equity & Justice (RE&J) team invites the Saint Mark’s faith community to step forward in racial justice allyship and action. For additional information or to get involved, contact Mary Ramsbottom, current chair of RE&J coordinating team.
