Let’s Fill Up an Ark for Episcopal Relief and Development! During Lent, the Christian Education Program and Outreach Committee will co-host a campaign to raise money for ERD through its “Gifts For Life” program. Other groups or individuals are invited to participate as well by raising/donating money toward an animal or farm aid from the “Gifts For Life” catalogue. For every donation, we will put a picture of the animal or item in the “ark” soon to appear in our gallery. Handouts with information on catalogue amounts for animals or agricultural aids and ERD envelops with information on making a donation are available in the Gallery by the ark.
