The United Thank Offering collection takes place in May and November at St Paul’s
The United Thank Offering of The Episcopal Church addresses compelling human need through grants to projects that alleviate poverty, both domestically and internationally, within the Anglican provinces, dioceses, and companion dioceses.
The United Offering (now the United Thank Offering) began at the General Convention of 1889. By joining together, the members of Episcopal Churches can extend grants for significant outreach projects which could not be sponsored by an individual parish or diocese.
Did you know… In 1904-1906, the ladies of St. Paul’s raised funds to support the building of Perry’s Victory? The monument was not part of the National Park Service when it was built. They contributed $30.00 each year. The National Park Service (NPS) was not established until 1916.
