The people of Good Shepherd, Irving have invited the people of the partnership dioceses to worship with them and visit the grounds of the former Thomas Indian School on September 11 during the Seneca Nation Fall Festival. Bishop Sean will attend and encourages everyone in the partnership dioceses to join him for this event, which will be hosted by the Rev. Roland Cooper and members of the Good Shepherd congregation.
To prepare for the visit, Faith Stewart, senior warden at Good Shepherd and a local school teacher, will hold an online program on August 30 at 7 p.m. People who have not yet had the opportunity to attend Sacred Ground or read “The Thomas Indian School and the ‘Irredeemable’ Children of New York,” are especially encouraged to attend. To register for this program and to receive updates on the schedule for September 11, email Gabrie’l Atchison.
