A Day to Remember Those in Need
Churches are invited to observe Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent or another convenient Sunday. This year Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday officially falls on February 21, 2021.
At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was officially designated as a time to encourage dioceses, congregations, and individuals to remember and support the life-saving work of Episcopal Relief & Development. We invite all Episcopalians to join together on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, and throughout the Lenten season, to pray for those living in need.
Please also consider dedicating a special offering on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday — in support of One Thousand Days of Love, to ensure that children are able to grow, learn and thrive over their entire lives.

There are a full set of resources, including a video sermon, bulletin inserts, pew envelopes, a Lenten meditation booklet, and more available on the Episcopal Relief and Development website.
