UTO issues December challenge to benefit Episcopal Migration Ministries

UTO issues December challenge to benefit Episcopal Migration Ministries

From the Episcopal Office of Public Affairs:

The Board of the United Thank Offering has presented a challenge to The Episcopal Church to benefit a special grant of $30,000 for Episcopal Migration Ministries.

Deemed Advent: Journey from Gratitude to Hope, the United Thank Offering board is challenging Episcopalians to support refugee welcome in the United States through its 2015 Ingathering Challenge.

“Jesus was part of a refugee family,” commented Sandra Squires, President of the United Thank Offering board. “We should be able to relate to the upheaval of today’s refugees through our love of him. For Advent and Christmas 2015, Episcopalians are asked to express gratitude with increased prayers of thanksgiving and daily giving to their Blue Boxes in remembrance of Jesus and today’s refugees.”

United Thank Offering will match the first $30,000 given by December 31, 2015 that is marked “EMM-UTO.”  The challenge, which kicks off immediately, will continue throughout December 2015.
