At Maine’s Episcopal Diocese’s Diocesan Convention in October, Bishop Lane asked congregations to consider a Thanksgiving ingathering for Episcopal Relief & Development, considering the tremendous need of people across the world.
What a timely request! Starting now through the end of December, ER&D supporters have the opportunity to double donations by participating in a holiday match.
A group of extremely generous donors will match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $760,000 until December 31. Donations made to any ER&D fund before year-end are eligible for matching, including contributions online, over the phone, by mail or through Gifts for Life, the organization’s alternative giving catalog. For new and existing monthly donors, any scheduled contributions will also be matched.
You can also make a check payable to St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, note ERD Matching gift in memo line and mail to: St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 21 Holyoke Street, Brewer, Maine 04412.
