Bishop's Annual Appeal

Gifts to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal multiply ministries.

Through the Bishop’s Annual Appeal you are feeding the hungry, giving comfort to those who are struggling, developing leaders, strengthening the church, and changing scores of lives every day.

Your gifts support clergy and lay formation opportunities, youth mission trips and leadership development, and outreach to the community.

It is a primary source of funding for Episcopal Community Services (ECS), which provides funds for parish-based outreach ministries that feed the hungry, educate children and young adults, provide spiritual freedom for people who are in prison, give hope to those who are struggling, and carry out God’s work in creative and inspired ways. Such programs provide crucial assistance to those in need. At the same time, they allow us to embody our Christian values and grow together spiritually.

Funds raised through the Appeal also help to underwrite mission trips and leadership development. They provide summer internships for high school and college students, and help to train and place newly ordained clergy.

It is only through your continued support that we are able to make such a difference in the lives of so many, extending to them God’s love and changing their worlds in ways that may most fully be measured by God’s gratitude.

Every gift makes a difference!
