United Thank Offering (UTO) Ingathering is Sunday, November 22
The UTO Annual Ingathering is November 22. This year, since we’re not worshipping in person, we’re not collecting the blue boxes, so please donate using the procedures for regular donations, detailed in the Bulletin, and indicate it’s for UTO. This year 100% of what is collected will be given to support Episcopal/Anglican ministries directly responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn. The 2019 ingathering total was $1,535,740.55, which reflects an increase of more than $200,000! Since 1889, UTO has awarded 5,296 grants for a total of $138,629,911.07. 
 
UTO is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world. Each diocese is allowed one domestic and one overseas grant. To visit the UTO website, click here: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/united-thank-offering
