Reparations and Restitution Ministry
Welcome to the Reparations and Restitution Ministry. While the work of racial reckoning, justice and healing has been ongoing for several years in the Diocese of North Carolina, we are in the early stages of visioning this new ministry.
This page is a dynamic and evolving site for making connections, informational resources and sparking the imagination for the deep soul work that lies ahead of us. Our hope is that the resources offered here are vehicles for conversation and serve as secondary accompaniments to the relationships fostered through their use. Various offerings and resources will be added as we move along, but for now we invite you to get acquainted with what is here today. May Spirit guide your scrolling mouse and light a holy fire within your soul.
The Rev. Javier Almendarez-Bautista
