United Thank Offering

The Episcopal Church Women’s United Thank Offering spring ingathering will be held at all services on Sunday, May 12.

All UTO Blue Boxes filled during Lent are to be brought to church that day. There will also be envelopes in the pews and chapel chairs for contributions, which you can then place in the offering plate or basket. Your offering may be made in cash or by check, payable to St. Paul’s ECW with “UTO” indicated in the memo line. You may also mail your offering to the church.

The United Thank Offering is an Episcopal Church Women’s ministry that is more than 100 years old. It directly supports our goal to be a missionary diocese. Twice a year, St. Paul’s ECW collects our offerings and sends them to the UTO diocesan chairman. A presentation is then made to the National Church where a select committee considers the many requests that have been received from both at home and abroad. We are especially proud that St. Paul’s is consistently among the largest UTO contributors in our diocese.

Let us show our thankfulness for all God has done for us by sharing our blessings with others. Please return the blue envelope with your gift on Sunday, May 12, or consider making a donation by mail.
