We have a rich history of working hand-in-hand with local and global agencies to provide meaningful outreach opportunities and respond to needs. We strive to create sustainable change, equity and dignity for the most vulnerable by seeing and serving Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and advocating for justice and peace.
Before we can act, we need to understand. Here are some upcoming opportunities to explore our questions, discuss relevant topics, welcome guest speakers, get to know one another, and gain a broader perspective of the needs and resources in our community and the wider world:

Episcopal Relief & Development is partnering with the Episcopal Dioceses of Southwest Florida and Florida to provide supplies and direct financial assistance to people affected by Hurricane Ian, and with the Episcopal Diocese of Texas as it distributes emergency assistance to people who lost their homes and livelihoods in an EF2 tornado. Please continue to pray for everyone who has been affected by devastating storms. Visit episcopalrelief.org to donate funds to support these relief efforts.
We are partners in Christ's ministry of reconciliation. To that end, we work on behalf of 'the least of these' to make sustainable, systemic changes that secure justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being. Here are some resources to explore:
