This month’s Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development celebrates the enthusiasm of the Godly Play students at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Jacksonville, Florida, in helping others through Episcopal Relief & Development’s Gifts for Life program. The children’s Lenten project was launched on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, February 17, as part of a congregation-wide effort to support the organization’s work in alleviating hunger and improving food supply.
