The Anglican Relief and Development Fund and the International Diocese of the Anglican Church in North America are working together to direct relief to the victims of the tornadoes in Oklahoma.
No doubt you have been moved with compassion for the people hit hard by tornadoes in the Oklahoma City, OK region – especially in the hardest hit area of Moore, OK.
The International Diocese, led by Bishop Bill Atwood, has a church in the region – St. James, Oklahoma City (The Rev. Tere Wilson, Rector). Bishop Atwood assures us that this parish will be a good relief command post – our local point of contact in directing donations for tornado relief.
You can give through the Anglican Relief and Development Fund – either immediately online or by mailing in a check. ARDF will send the funds to the International Diocese for distribution.
For churches: feel free to print this Bulletin Insert with information about giving for your parishioners.
Thank you for your generous giving. May God bless those affected by this disaster.
“O merciful Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men: Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servants for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”Help raise awareness:
