Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday
Sunday, March 10, 2019
The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, invites all Episcopalians to join together in observance of Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on March 10, 2019.
"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," said Presiding Bishop Curry. "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."
At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was officially designated as a time for dioceses, congregations, and individuals to remember and support the life-saving work of Episcopal Relief & Development. Although the first Sunday in Lent is the official day of observance, churches may hold a special service on any Sunday.
