Young Episcopalians bring back stories from US-Mexico border

By Bridget K. Wood, Diocese of Massachusetts

With the migrant crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border in the news, a group of seven high school-aged Episcopalians, along with three adults, set off in August for a week in Nogales, Ariz., to hear the stories of people who are experiencing it firsthand.
Their trip was part of Las Fronteras: Faith in Action, a yearlong Diocese of Massachusetts program that helps young people from different congregations get to know one another and together explore issues relating to the border.

Native American ministries renew connections in the west

By Craig Wirth

A new generation of western Native American Episcopalians joined their elders and priests at the first “Mountains and Deserts” conference in a decade, held June 18-20 at the Episcopal Church Center of Utah in Salt Lake City. The Episcopal Church Missioner for Indigenous Ministries, the Rev. Bradley Hauff said the gathering represented a new network of support for isolated reservation and rural congregations.
About 50 attendees discussed ways to continue to combine centuries of culture with Episcopal liturgy, how to involve more youth, how to share church life including attendance and support for each new ordination of a Native American, and ways to raise up new ordained leadership.
