All Saints' Episcopal Church-Frederick, MD

Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton and Waymon Wright of All Saints' Episcopal Church-Frederick, MD reflect on and honor one of the sacred and holy places at The Claggett Center. Buried in a tiny cemetery cradled in the valley at the The Claggett Center are the remains of at least two people of African descent who were enslaved.

"Every time I come here, and sometimes it just brings tears to my eyes, I say 'I am here.' The first African-American bishop of this diocese, that itself has been enriched by slavery... 150 years after they worked this land - one of our own is now head of this body, and we are honoring them." Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton

Buried in a tiny cemetery cradled in the valley at the Claggett Center are the remains of at least two people of African descent who were enslaved. Bishop Sutton and Waymon Wright of All Saints' Episcopal Church-Frederick, MD stop here to honor them and the sacrifices they made.

God of abundance,
In a world where some do not have enough,
Make us brave to share out of our own riches.

God of justice,
In a world where some have far more than others,
Make us bold to provide for all people.

God of mercy,
In a world broken with desire for more,
Forgive us for taking the greater portions.

Thanks and praise to you,
God of abundance
God of justice
God of mercy.

Be with us and all people this day.

Amen

On All Saints’ Day – we are reminded that modern saints are Christians like you – faithful people who, by giving of themselves, make it possible for those in need to experience the abundant life of Jesus.

This year, donors like you made it possible for Darius and his family to escape repression and death threats by coming to America. Our prayer is that you will be so inspired by the good work we do together as a diocese that you will give right now to make a new life possible for the next Darius, for the next family – from half-way around the world, or in your own neighborhood.

Our purpose as people made saints by the grace of Jesus Christ is to unveil God’s Community of Love. Give to the Bishops’ Appeal and unveil hope, beauty and light – join with All the Saints as we make God’s Community of Love a reality in our neighborhoods, diocese and throughout our world. Thank you.

Claggett Center congratulates St. Luke's Restoration of Nature for all it is doing to restore the environment and bring back the beauty that surrounds one of the diocese's churches.

In our ongoing ecosystem restoration, we see signs that make us very happy. Fish are feeding just inside the living shoreline soon to be planted with Spartina alterniflora and a pair of Mallards are feeding and nesting in the wetlands.

The snow is melting quickly.  Let Spring be here soon!

Virginia Proctor, a beloved employee at the Claggett Center for over 50 years, died peacefully in her sleep on January 13. The viewing will be held on Saturday, January 27 at 10:00 AM at Hopehill United Methodist Church, 7647 Fingerboard Road. The funeral service will take place at 11:00 AM. Condolences may be sent to Virginia’s daughter, Teena Procter at 90 Waverly Dr, Apt J104, Frederick, MD 21702.

Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord; And let light perpetual shine upon them. May their souls, and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Grant, O Lord, to all who are bereaved the spirit of faith and courage, that they may have strength to meet the days to come with steadfastness and patience; not sorrowing as those without hope, but in thankful remembrance of your great goodness, and in the joyful expectation of eternal life with those they love. And this we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
