United Thank Offering (UTO) Ingathering is Sunday, November 21 The UTO Annual Ingathering is November 21. Please use the envelope found in your printed bulletin, or donate using the procedures for regular donations, detailed in the Bulletin, and indicate it’s for UTO. This year, supplies were ordered from the New UTO Distribution Center in Navajoland, where you may also order items made and sold by Navajos, https://shimaofnavajoland.com/collections/seeds-and-gardens. The UTO’s 2020 Ingathering generated $929,370, nearly half of which went to COVID-19 related needs. Since its founding in 1889, UTO has awarded 5,384 grants for a total of $141,104,725.30.

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 promote thank offerings, 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.
