See the Trail of Souls

Adapted from a Diocese of Maryland announcement

Episcopal churches in Maryland will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the abolishment of chattel slavery on November 1 with a pilgrimage. “The Trail of Souls: Truth and Reconciliation Pilgrimage” is a day-long journey to five Maryland sites with strong ties to both slavery and the Episcopal Church, and an online virtual pilgrimage of 21 churches.

“We journey together both to remember a painful period in our history and to envision a future free of racism and injustice,” said the Rt. Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton, Bishop of Maryland, in a letter welcoming pilgrims on the journey.

The diocese invites participation in buses or private vehicles. The journey begins at Clover Hill, Baltimore, at the Cathedral of the Incarnation and the Diocesan Center. Stops on the pilgrimage: All Hallows’ Church, Davidsonville; All Saints’ Church, Sunderland; Grace Church, Silver Spring (Episcopal Diocese of Washington); and the Claggett Center/Hasselbach Family Cemetery, Buckeystown.

A complete itinerary is available at trailofsouls.org, along with information about the churches participating in the continuing virtual tour.

Pilgrims will include Bishop Sutton, the Rt. Rev. Heather Elizabeth Cook, bishop suffragan of Maryland, and the Rt. Rev. Mariann Budde, Bishop of Washington.
