The 81st General Convention of the Episcopal Church



Episcopal Relief & Development, along with Episcopal, Anglican and other local partners, supports community-based change that harnesses local expertise, experience and assets. Established in 1940 by The Episcopal Church, our work is only possible because of the contributions of our partners, donors and The Episcopal Church’s leadership.

Episcopal Relief & Development is participating in the 81st General Convention of The Episcopal Church in Louisville to share our gratitude, to provide information about our work, to foster and grow new relationships with emerging church leaders, and to catch up with old friends.

For those attending General Convention, we look forward to visiting with you at our booth (#700). For those following the work of the General Convention from remote locations, we invite you to browse the resources on this page to learn how you can join us in working with communities affected by injustice, poverty, disaster and climate change. The Episcopal Church and Episcopal Relief & Development are truly Working Together for Lasting Change.
