Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry invites all Episcopalians to observe Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on March 10.
“As we follow in the footsteps of Jesus this Lent, we know that living out God’s love for the world is our ultimate goal,” Bishop Curry said. “I invite all congregations to devote a Sunday in Lent to reflect on the life-giving work of Episcopal Relief & Development and to demonstrate God’s love by giving meaningfully to this vital ministry.”
In 2009 General Convention designated Lent as a time for dioceses, congregations, and individuals to remember and support Episcopal Relief & Development. The first Sunday in Lent is the designated day of observance, but churches may hold a special service on any Sunday.

“There is no greater support for the work of Episcopal Relief & Development than when faithful people remember our partners, program participants, and staff in their prayers,” said Rob Radtke, president and CEO.
