In his Easter letter to the Diocese of Massachusetts this year, Bishop Thomas Shaw SSJE invited the parishes of the diocese to join him in the 17th Annual Mother’s Day March for Peace to witness to the need for healing in our community and the need for all to work to reduce violence in our cities. This march will take place on Sunday, May 12, 2013 starting from Town Field Park, Fields Corner, Dorchester at 8:30 am.
Since this event coincides with St. Cyprian’s annual Mothers’ Day celebrations, we will forego our custom of serving Mother’s Day luncheon and will, instead, honor our mothers by taking part in the march.
At the conclusion of the march, our bishops and our fellow Episcopalians will celebrate the Eucharist at the march’s end point. Since our rector will be a participant in the march and Eucharist, there will be a said Eucharist at St. Cyprian’s instead of the sung service.
We hope you can join us in this shared witness honoring our mothers and working for peace in our communities.
