Million Meals Ingathering This Sunday

Fr. Will














Come bring your containers and checks! This Sunday we will be gathering donations for Million Meals. This wonderful program for the hungry in Orange and LA Counties has been feeding people for over a decade. Let's see if we can make it to the 9 million mark!

Relief for Haiti
ERD

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church has issued the following statement concerning the January 12 earthquake in Haiti:

 

The people of Haiti have suffered a devastating earthquake, and it is already clear that many have died and many more are injured. Even under "normal" circumstances, Haiti struggles to care for her 9 million people. 

 

The nation is the poorest in the western hemisphere, and this latest disaster will set back many recent efforts at development.  I urge your prayers for those who have died, been injured, and are searching for loved ones - and I urge your concrete and immediate prayers in the form of contributions to Episcopal Relief & Development, who are already working with the Diocese of Haiti to send aid where it is most needed. 

 

 

Urgently - without a moment's delay - Episcopal Relief & Development needs your help to respond to this catastrophic earthquake. 


As the crisis unfolds, we are working with Diocese of Haiti to provide critical, life saving assistance such as food, water and medicine, as well as long-term recovery and rehabilitation aid in the aftermath of the January 12 earthquake.

Donate now to Episcopal Relief & Development's Haiti Fund.



May your Epiphany adventures be enlightening!
Blessings,
Fr. Rob and Mo. Ly
