Episcopal Ministries of Long Island 2017 Annual Appeal: Every Step of the Way

2017 Annual Appeal

The path, a wise poet once wrote, is made by walking, and as the Diocese of Long Island moves more deeply into compassionate, gospel-driven service, Episcopal Ministries of Long Island will be with you every step of the way. That’s why we hope you will support us with a generous donation to the Appeal.

Maybe your parish is just doing the research and acquiring the skills that will allow you to launch a feeding ministry or a special program for seniors. We can help through grant writing workshops, educational forums and individual consultations.

Perhaps you have a vision for an afterschool program or a neighborhood development project but you need experienced partners. We can put you in touch with a trusted network of non-profit agencies that understand our values and our communities.

Maybe your parish is ready to roll out a new initiative for the poor, or the marginalized, but just needs a little financial assistance. We can help with that too.

Or maybe your community has its hands full with other important work but is eager to support the excellent ministries unfolding elsewhere in our diocese. We need you.

“We are one diocese with one mission.”

- Bishop Lawrence Provenzano

From youth outreach programs at St. George’s in Astoria to SPARK, the new seniors program at Holy Trinity Church, Valley Stream, and from the Reality Check educational center at St. Gabriel’s in Brooklyn to the Peconic Deanery’s Brown Bag Lunch program that ministers to day laborers and the growing Latino population on the East End of Long Island, we are helping to nurture a network of care that spans our diocese and meets the needs of the people in our communities.

Bishop Provenzano likes to remind us that we are one diocese with one mission. We want to equip the people of our diocese for that mission and accompany them as they set about it. We are with you every step of the way, and we hope you will be with us. Please help us with a gift.
