The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents 

John Roberto

​The Way of Saint Paul Team presents this exciting speaker on May 20 at 6:00 pm in Martin Hall. He is one of the principle architects of the Way of St. Paul movement and will be talking about the state of the church, especially Holy Innocents, today. All are welcome.

End Modern Slavery Initiative Update 

This is a very unusual and somewhat trying election cycle, and you're probably tired of hearing and thinking about politics. But the business of government is grinding on.


The End Modern Slavery Initiative is being held hostage by several Senators (only a few) on the spurious grounds that some funds contributed by foreign governments could conceivably be used to fund abortions. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Senator Bob Corker, Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is adamant that the bill, which passed unanimously out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is about slavery and slavery alone. “This fund is being established to free slaves, both in sexual servitude and forced labor, and prosecute their captors. The legislation does not provide for abortion and has no pro-life issues,” says Corker. “It would seem that those claiming otherwise either haven’t read the current version of the legislation or have other reasons for trying to kill a bill focused on rescuing over 27 million women, children and men enslaved today around the world.” 

We elect these people and we need to make our voices heard. Please call, write or email your Senators and Representatives in Washington. 

This article from TIME April 15 explains the who/what/why of the issue. Please share it with all who want the truth about where the End Modern Slavery Initiative is!
