Episcopal Charities


Be Enriched

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

             2 Corinthians 9:11, NRSV

We are going to celebrate Thanksgiving differently this year with necessary COVID-19 restrictions. But remember that there are those among us who wonder how, or if, they’ll be able to meet the very basic of needs not just on Thanksgiving but every day.  They struggle day-by-day in the midst of incredible stress and, in some cases, loss.

What can we do? Be generous on this and every occasion by giving to Episcopal Charities. Your gift goes a long way to provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those Rhode Islanders who need it most.

Use the button below for online giving or send a check to Episcopal Charities, 275 North Main Street, Providence 02903.
We wish you a safe and blessed Thanksgiving.

Thank you for your continued support.

A Message From Our +Bishop

March 16, 2020

To the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island,

During this time of pandemic, we are faced with continually evolving circumstances. As people of faith, we have a sure and certain anchor in the love of God made known to us in Jesus Christ. God is summoning us here to a particular ministry in this time of crisis. We will do everything we can do as Christian people to serve and support our neighbors and our communities across the state.

As followers of Jesus, we are not always certain where to begin. We can promise to pray without ceasing for the wellbeing of our communities and the whole world. From there we can ask God to show us where we are needed and how we might best respond, as in this humble prayer:

This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen. The Book of Common Prayer, p. 461.

Please feel free to share this message with your families, friends and fellow parishioners, and invite them to sign up for future messages and information.

Bishop of Rhode Island Providence
