Episcopal Relief and Development

Go to Links tab at top of page and click on Episcopal Relief and Development to see how the Episcopal Church is helping now in many areas and to donate.


Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said, “Long ago the prophet Malachi taught that we are all children of God by virtue of our creation by the same God. ‘Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us,’ he asked (2:10). Jesus taught the same thing when he told a story about a Good Samaritan. We are indeed all the children of God. And if we are all God's children, then we are all brothers and sisters,”  Our support of Episcopal Relief & Development is a tangible, practical, effective and reliable way to do that, not just in the short term, but for the long haul. Thank you for whatever you can do for together we are the human family of God."

To enable Episcopal Relief & Development to provide critical support after the storm, please donate.

O God, who breathed calm into the chaos in rhe beginning of creation,

We pray to breathe your peace into the troubled heart of our nation

--suffer us not to turn coward before its difficulties and duties

not allow faithless fears to overrun our national life. So that we may be a nation at peace among ourselves and a blessing to the other nations of the earth. 


A Joint Episcopal-Lutheran Call to Prayer, Fasting and Advocacy

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America issued a joint statement May 18 calling for prayer, fasting and advocacy. Bishop Barry Beisner is asking members of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California to join in this effort.

The statement, For Such a Time as This: A Call to Prayer, Fasting and Advocacy, calls for fasting on the 21st of each month through December 2018, at which time the 115th Congress will conclude.

The 21st of each month is targeted because by that time each month, 90% of SNAP (formerly food stamp) benefits have been used, thereby causing hunger in the last week of the month.
