Rebuild the Churches distributes $92,000 to each of six burned churches

Rebuild the Churches distributes $92,000 to each of six burned churches

After the killings at Emanuel African Methodist, and acts of arson against several historically black churches, a variety of faith-based organizations and individuals raised funds to help rebuild them. Muslim organizations were previously reported to have raised over $100,000, and several Christian groups have donated heavily.

The National Council of Churches is still soliciting funds, and the Rebuild the Churches Fund of Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral of St. Louis has announced an early distribution of $92,000 to each of the six burned churches (three are confirmed as arson; two were accidental, and the last is still under investigation, but an accident has been ruled out).

More than 3,000 people have now contributed to Rebuild the Churches Fund. You can join them on their fund-raising campaign page. You can read their press release for more details. The campaign ends in mid-September.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
