Episcopal Charities Sunday: Fight Hunger in Your Community

Each year, parishes across the diocese celebrate Episcopal Charities Sunday, inviting their parishioners to provide critical support for the feeding programs of Episcopal Charities.  Most do so on Mother's Day and we've already heard from more than 70 parishes whose generosity will help those in need. Thanks!
