 Around the Diocese
A Giving Garden in Dutchess County
The new raised-bed garden at St. Thomas' Church in Amenia will provide $20,000 worth of fresh produce to the parish's food pantry each year. The parish celebrated and blessed the garden on May 25. Read more on our blog.
A Labyrinth in Woodstock
Thanks to a significant grant from the Samuel Friedman Charitable Trust, Episcopal Charities is proud to support the Horticultural Therapy Garden and the new Labyrinth at St. Gregory's Church in Woodstock. The project was recently featured in the Hudson Valley News.

Thank you to the 69 - and counting! parishes that celebrated Episcopal Charities Sunday this year. We've already raised more than $32,000 in support of the 45 feeding programs of Episcopal Charities! 


The Church of the Good Shepherd's second annual Coffeehouse with a Cause talent show raised $250 to support parish-based feeding programs. Highlights included joke-telling second graders and original folk song performances. "It's a simple thing to do - I recommend it," says Rector Erika Meyer "And it's a great way to reach out to our neighbors." 

Volunteer Appreciation Supper at the Church of St. Matthew & St. Timothy


The Sunday Meals program at the parish of St. Matthew and St. Timothy serves a home-cooked meal to at least 75 hungry people every Sunday from October to June. This June the parish hosted an appreciation dinner for the 50 volunteers who make this possible. And the volunteers  appreciate the neighbors they serve!  


"[Our guests] are our family - so when they come, we treat them like family," said Jennifer, the captain of Volunteer Team Four (pictured above). 

Welcome: New Leadership and Staff
Episcopal Charities was pleased to welcome John P. Banning, Jr., Susannah Carrier, and the Rev. Betty McWhorter to our Board of Directors in June. And in November 2013, we welcomed James A. Florack, Peter W. Keller, and Lawrence E. Phillips to the Board.
We also warmly welcome our new Mountbatten Intern, Alicia Rynkowska, who will be with us until March 2015. 
A Day in the Life of Our Summer Programs
It's 8:30 a.m., and the children at the Summer Vacation School at Ss. John, Paul and Clement Summer in Mount Vernon sit down to a hearty, nutritious breakfast to get them ready for the day's activities..."
