Bulletin Insert: Pentecost 17 (A) - The Episcopal Church Annual Appeal - September 27, 2020

September 27, 2020

Dear People of God in The Episcopal Church:

At baptism, we promise to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being. Today, Episcopalians are turning out in cities and towns across the United States to make that promise real by demanding an end to systemic racism. With a gift to the BLESS Annual Appeal, you can support their ministry and The Episcopal Church’s witness for justice at this pivotal time.

In the last two months, The Episcopal Church has rushed funds to our dioceses in Minnesota, Kentucky, and Georgia where laypeople and clergy are partnering with local organizers and activists to end the racist brutality that led to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. The struggle against racism is long and hard, and it is taking place not only in those communities, but also in congregations and dioceses across our church. And as our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry says, “We will still be doing it when the news cameras are long gone.”

If your income is uninterrupted during the coronavirus pandemic, we invite you to join us in supporting Episcopalians working against racism with a gift to the BLESS Annual Appeal.

You can make a gift three ways: you can return the enclosed envelope with your check or credit card information; you can make your gift online at; or you can call 212-716-6002 and make your gift over the phone. Thank you. With your support, our church can draw closer to becoming the Beloved Community that God calls us to be.

In Christ,

The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings
President, House of Deputies
