Dear Sisters & Brothers in Christ,
Many people have asked us how they can help out in this time. As we continue forward in this time of crisis and unknown, there are many people in our community who are facing uncertain futures in terms of their income and employment.
Some of you might know that we have what is called a discretionary fund. It is a fund to be distributed at the discretion of the clergy, specifically to help people who have some financial need, such as help with rent, paying bills, buying food.
Instead of contributing this Lent to our outreach offering, and in lieu of contributing to Easter Flowers & Music we are asking those of you who are able to contribute to our discretionary fund. Please give as generously as you are able. Our discretionary fund currently has $2,000. In order to meet a variety of needs, we hope that balance will increase with your generous donations.
Requests to our Discretionary Fund: If you are experiencing any financial distress during this time, please get in touch with us. Any requests to us are strictly confidential.
We also want to thank everyone who is still able to give their contributions online via Realm. We appreciate your continued commitment to Holy Apostles during this time. If you would like to switch to online giving, please let us know and we can help you set that up or you can contribute HERE.
We are so grateful for this community especially during this time and we hope that we are able to help each other out as much as possible.
In gratitude with love,
