United Thank Offering Ingathering: Sunday, September 24
United Thank Offering (UTO) Blue Boxes are available to pick up in the Lobby. From now until our in-gathering on September 24, we encourage parishioners to take one Box home and consider using these as part of our spiritual practices; for example, whenever you identify and give thanks to God for your blessings, place a bill in the UTO Blue Box. At the end of September, when the Blue Boxes are collected, the donations received will fund grants for Episcopal ministries and partners all over the world. There are several ways to participate with UTO. To find out more, click here for their website or check out UTO's online brochure.
