Festive Eucharist with the Rev. Shaneequa Brokenleg

by | Aug 3, 2023

The final class of the Tending Our Soil Thriving Congregations Initiative will kick off in the sanctuary at St. Luke’s, DC at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 16 with a festive Eucharist with Bishop Budde presiding and the Rev. Shaneequa Brokenleg preaching. Our liturgy for the day will include prayers and songs written by Rev. Brokenleg.

The Rev. Shaneequa Brokenleg joined the presiding bishop’s staff in January 2020 as the staff officer for racial reconciliation in the Office of Reconciliation, Justice, and Creation Care. In this role she partners with parishes and dioceses across the country to train and teach the Becoming Beloved Community curriculum.

An epidemiologist in her previous career, Rev. Brokenleg’s call to priesthood offered an opportunity to unite her professional and spiritual life. She is a member of the Lakota tribe and is a Winkte, a sacred healer. Her current work on racial reconciliation draws on her skills and approaches she used on reservations and in native communities, partnering to bring tools and resources, while listening deeply to the needs of the community.

We are thrilled to welcome Rev. Brokenleg to the diocese as she preaches a message sure to inspire us all. Please join us!
