In our world
Episcopal Relief & Development
is the international relief and development agency of the Episcopal Church of the United States, guided by the Episcopal Church’s principles of compassion, dignity and generosity as we work to heal a hurting world. They take their mandate from the words of Jesus, found in Matthew 25: 37-40, that call us to feed the hungry, care for the sick and welcome the stranger.
United Thank Offering
The UTO was begun in 1889 as a discipline on our life in Christ - a way of daily prayer and thanksgiving of dropping a few coins in "the blue box." These offerings are collected twice yearly, and are combined with donations from all over the country to create grant money for foreign missions as well as local outreach. For information, contact Mary Quednau.
FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals formulated specially for starving children, and we ship the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. From time to time, St. Lawrence parishioners participate in FMSC events.
