A Note from Bishop Lucinda Ashby
As the invasion and violence continue to increase in Ukraine, and refugees flee into neighboring countries, some have asked what we can do to help with this crisis.  We have learned today that over 3 million people are currently displaced as a result of the war, and organizations are working together to provide basics of food, clothing and shelter.  Episcopal Relief and Development is partnering with Christian organizations on the ground in places like Poland, Moldova, Slovakia, Romania working tirelessly to respond to immediate needs. 

Go to the ER-D site https://www.episcopalrelief.org/  to donate quickly to refugees fleeing Ukraine.  On the homepage there is a button that allows people an easy way to give money; our prayers are in pushing “donate.”

Thank you for garnering support for the many for whom prayers are answered with a cup of soup, a warm coat, and a sleeping bag.

Faithfully,
+Lucinda

Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of El Camino Real

What does it mean when you say “All Are Welcome”?
It’s what makes us as an Episcopal church – the idea that all are welcome in our church, at our table. No matter your orientation, denomination, race, ethnicity, political beliefs, what has happened in your past – we come here together to worship and share in fellowship and love, just as Jesus taught us.
