Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday

logo for Episcopal Relief and Development, healing a hurting worldSt. Martin-in-the-Fields joins congregations across The Episcopal Church in mission on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, February 22, with prayers, sermons and special offerings to support the organization’s work worldwide.

This year’s observance has particular significance, as Episcopalians and friends celebrate 75 years of healing a hurting world through the agency’s programs and partnerships.  Today, Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD) works with more than three million people each year in nearly 40 countries to strengthen communities and combat poverty, hunger and disease.

Bishop Rayford High of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth invites all congregations in the diocese to set aside one Sunday in Lent for their ERD Sunday, and to support the life-saving work of ERD.

St. Martin’s invites you to read about what ERD does and their work in the United States and around the world on their website here. You can make a donation on their website or in church.
