Congregations are invited to observe Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent or another convenient Sunday. This year Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday officially falls on March 6, 2022.
At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was officially designated as a time to encourage dioceses, congregations and individuals to remember and support the life-saving work of Episcopal Relief & Development. You can view the official designation statement here. We invite all Episcopalians to join together on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, and throughout the Lenten season, to pray for those living in need.
Please also consider dedicating a special offering on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday — in support of ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE, to ensure that children are able to grow, learn and thrive over their entire lives.
