The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents 

LENT 2019

Episcopal Relief & Development celebrates the 15th anniversary of the organization’s Lenten Meditations with inspiring selections from previous years that highlight the incredible depth and insight provided by leaders from around The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. 

There is a lot of information including a Lenten Meditation Series on our Spirituality page


Congregations are invited to observe Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent, or another convenient Sunday.

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 in support of our mission to assist people impacted by poverty worldwide. All gifts from these events will be designated to Episcopal Relief & Development’s Global Needs Fund. This fund enables the agency to reach those most in need around the world.
