JACKSON, MS (WLBT)- Members of the Episcopal Church of Mississippi gathered in the Capital City Friday afternoon for the start of the 184th Annual Council.
Clergy and Lay representatives from the state's 88 Episcopal congregations met at the Jackson Convention Complex in downtown Jackson.
This year's theme is "Spirit of Mission". The Right Rev. Duncan Gray, III issued a challenge to make a renewed commitment to racial reconciliation. The call comes in light of the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Freedom Summer in Mississippi.
The council ends Sunday with a worship service.
