A Lifeline of Hope

A Lifeline of Hope

Episcopal Ministries of Long Island brings us together as a people of faith to tangibly demonstrate God’s love and collectively care for our neighbors who are vulnerable. In this past, painful year, you embodied Christ’s love and responded to our brothers and sisters in need—each in your own way.

You provided hot meals—offering nourishment and comfort.

You tended gardens and supplied fresh vegetables to local food pantries.

You stocked and restocked pantries to keep up with increasing demand.

You collected and distributed school supplies.

You delivered groceries to those who couldn't leave their homes.

You may not have been in the kitchen or making deliveries, but you were there. Your donations to Episcopal Ministries fueled these initiatives and energized these ministries. From Yaphank to Astoria, Huntington to Brooklyn, you were caring for our sisters and brothers through Episcopal Ministries.

For one struggling mother, your support was transformational. When she learned that the parishioners at Holy Apostles Church in Brooklyn had paid her overdue electric bill, she was beyond grateful. She was overwhelmed that people she didn’t know would do this for her. She said “I’ve never felt so loved, so heard, so cared for, in my entire life.”

The pandemic may be waning, but we know that the needs will continue—inequalities and injustices present before the pandemic have not gone away. And we must continue to tangibly demonstrate God’s love—caring for the vulnerable and marginalized—as the Holy Spirit calls us.

We can’t do this work alone. Through Episcopal Ministries, we share our gifts, talents and resources. And as the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, we come together to be God’s light and his love here in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk.

Join us in common ministry with a gift to the Episcopal Ministries Annual Appeal and together, we will rise to meet the challenges ahead.

You can join us and be this lifeline of hope for our neighbors.

Make a gift to Episcopal Ministries to help reach our goal of $150,000 by May 23.
