LENTEN  NETS FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN

  • The Episcopal Church encourages each congregation to give .07% of its operating budget for Nets for Life, supported by Episcopal Relief & Development. For All Saints’ .07% equals $1,523.00, which provides 130 mosquito nets at $12.00 each to help eradicate malaria in seventeen countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Opportunities to donate a net will be available on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.
