Bishop's Annual Appeal

Gifts to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal multiply ministries.

Each year the Appeal provides $100,000 to Episcopal Community Services (ECS).  Our gifts also underwrite mission trips and leadership development for youth and adults alike, make possible summer internships for high school and college students, and help to support formational positions for newly ordained clergy.  Through the Bishop’s Appeal, together we undertake ministries that are essential to our participation in God’s mission.
