Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing

A RACIAL HEALING RESOURCE FOR THE ENTIRE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

The Diocese of Atlanta is home to the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, a resource for the worldwide Episcopal Church.

The Center strengthens The Episcopal Church’s commitment to reach across the borders and boundaries that divide the human family of God. Center programs provide parishes and dioceses around the world with support to address racism head-on through racial reconciliation and healing.

Presiding Bishop The Most Rev. Michael Curry spoke at the opening for the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing.

“We shall either learn to live together as brothers and sisters, or we will perish together as fools. The choice is ours, chaos or community,” said Presiding Bishop Curry - echoing the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “This center really does seek to address the polarities and divisions occasioned by our racial history, but also the polarities and divisions that are either directly or indirectly related to that.”

Dr. Catherine Meeks is the founding executive director of the Center dedicated to provide training and bring energy and enthusiasm to the church's work of racial reconciliation.
