Episcopal Relief and Development
Leader: Cathryn Keag



 Members of our church support Episcopal Relief and Development


Not every disaster makes headlines: Episcopal Relief & Development is partnering with the Church of Ceylon’s Diocese of Colombo to feed more than 3,000 displaced people following severe and widespread flooding in Sri Lanka. These relief activities, led by the diocesan Board of Social Responsibility (BSR), are focused in five hard-hit districts where the Church’s strong presence can best meet local needs.



In 2011, Episcopal Relief & Development spent 86% on programs versus 6% on administration and 8% on fundraising. Because of the support they receive from the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in the form of contributed services, in addition to income from their own investments, at least 90% of every donor dollar goes directly to programs

Lord, when was it that 
We saw you hungry and gave you food?
We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink?
We saw you a stranger and welcomed you?
We saw you sick and took care of you?
We saw you in prison and visited you?
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

—Matthew 25: 37-40 (NRSV)


A tradition of saving lives.

Since 1940, Episcopal Relief & Development has been healing a hurting world. As

the compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering, the

agency takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25:30-40. Episcopal

Relief & Development embraces the Episcopal Church’s principles of compassion,

dignity and generosity and helps Episcopalians answer God’s call to serve Christ in

all persons—caring for the sick, feeding the hungry and welcoming the stranger.



Episcopal Relief and Development, last year reached out to more then two million people both here and abroad, to address poverty, hunger, disease and to bring disaster relief.
