Growing in God's Love as an Open, Caring Community

Faith Linking in Action (FLIA)

Faith Linking in Action

Our purpose is to engage, coach and support congregations, regardless of religious affiliation, and the members of communities they serve, to work together to address root causes of poverty. We educate the broader public and elected officials about our identified issues, and support faith communities to connect work on these issues to their theological context.

St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church Community is a founding member of FLIA, established in 2012. St. Pat’s Representatives to FLIA: Rev. Peggy Day, secretary; Mary Ann Perry; Rev. Lev Sherman
