Bishop's Partnership Appeal
A variety of gifts

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord " 1 Corinthians 12:4-5

Reflecting on God's Gifts in our Diocese

From running a music and arts camp, to answering needs here and abroad, to providing critical mission support, to going on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the churches and ministries of the Diocese of Northern California bring a variety of gifts to God's people.These programs, and others featured through the Bishop's Partnership Appeal, ensure that the ministries you support can continue their good work, offering their gifts at a local, national and international level.

This year, the Episcopal Foundation of Northern California is contributing a challenge grant of $1,000 if the annual appeal reaches $15,000 in donations. The Diocese will also contribute $1,000 if this goal is achieved.  Please be generous in your support.
