Good Friday Offering for Jerusalem
As Jerusalem draws Christians together from around the world, the Good Friday Offering is an opportunity to bring The Episcopal Church together with a singular focus. The Good Friday Offering brings The Episcopal Church together across all of our cultures, languages, and ethnic diversity – from domestic and overseas dioceses, North and South and Central America, the Caribbean, Taiwan, and our parishes in Europe – to focus our prayers and our tangible support to further the Jesus Movement through the parishes and institutions of healing and education throughout the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. Funds are used to promote peace and mutual understanding through pastoral care, health care, and educational programs throughout the region. Please make checks out to St. Martin’s with “Good Friday Offering” in the memo line, or click here to donate online.
