Presiding Bishop Michael Curry calls for Good Friday Offering to support ministry in Anglican Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East
The history of the Good Friday Offering reaches back to 1922 when, in the aftermath of World War I, The Episcopal Church sought to create new relationships with and among the Christians of the Middle East. From these initial efforts which focused on a combination of relief work and the improvement of ecumenical and Anglican relations, the Good Friday Offering was created.

Through the years many Episcopalians have found the Good Friday Offering to be an effective way to express their support for the ministries of the four dioceses of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. Pastoral care, education and health care continue to be primary ministries through which the reconciling spirit of the Christian faith serves all in need.

Two-Part Workshop For Vestry, Digital Ministers, Clergy
April 17 & April 24
10:00am - 12:00pm
Online

  • Part 1: Evangelism and Communications
  • Part 2: Performing the Audit

Evangelism isn't about more people in the pews, but about spreading the Kingdom of God. If we tell the story in every aspect of our congregational life and communications, people will be drawn to JESUS and, perhaps, find their spiritual home among us.

Together We Thrive
Leading in a Liminal Season
with Rev. Susan Beaumont
May 4-5, 2021
Online

"How do you lead an organization stuck between an ending and a new beginning—when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear? Such in-between times are called liminal seasons—threshold times when the continuity of tradition disintegrates and uncertainty about the future fuels doubt and chaos. In a liminal season it simply is not helpful to pretend we understand what needs to happen next. But leaders can still lead. Liminal seasons call for a different kind of leadership presence, one that connects the soul of leaders with the soul of the institution."
