Indigenous Ministry

There is a long history of ministry by The Episcopal Church in serving Indigenous people across the United States. We now have bishops, priests, deacons, and elected lay leaders, who have Indigenous roots. You can be a faithful Christian and honor your Native American heritage.

 

Consider the "A Disciple's Prayer Book."  It provides an excellent way of encountering Christ within the sacred circle of the Gospel and with one another.

 

We are using the "First Nations Version: An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament" as part of our Sunday Bible Study discussion, and it has opened wonderful new ways of understanding Holy Scripture. Join us in person or online at 9:30 a.m. (to receive the online Zoom link, email us at: office@oursaviourky.org)

September 24, 2022 - For the first time our parish had a booth at the 28th Annual Richmond Powwow. We were the only church or faith community with a booth. We had many visitors to our booth. We learned about the tradition of each of the ceremonial dances that were performed and about the ceremonial dress the performers wore. The traditions were explained before each ceremonial dance. Mary Arthur provided the public commentary for the horse parade while her granddaughter Lexie rode her horse around the sacred dance circle. We ate some delicious traditional frybread. Every person we met was kind, thoughtful, and happy to talk to us about the history and traditions of the Cherokee and Shawnee Native Americans who live in this region of Kentucky
