The Rev. Pauli Murray Feast Day June 27th
Bishop Doyle has encouraged all Churches in the diocese to celebrate the day!
The Rev. Pauli Murray is one of the Church’s contemporary saints. She is the first African American woman ordained priest. She was also a renowned civil rights lawyer and helped to strategize some of the most important civil rights cases. She worked with Ruth Bader Ginsberg, then an attorney, to successfully devise a constitutional test to protect women against discrimination. In Fall 2018, St.James’ Episcopal Church in Austin and Seminary of the Southwest began a collaboration to create the Texas Pauli Murray Scholarship.
