A message for Easter 2022 from Bishop Alan M. Gates

Starting at sunset--7:41 p.m.--on Thursday, April 28, the diocesan Young Adult Advisory Committee and the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard are teaming up to co-host a spring revival in the chaplaincy’s backyard at 2 Garden Street in Cambridge, with music by the Appalachian string band, The Onlies, smoked meats and homemade pies, and the chance to meet new people.

Isaac Martinez, a member of the Young Adult Advisory Committee, said in a Zoom interview.
