BURLINGTON, VERMONT – In April 2018, the Cathedral Church of St. Paul hosted a fellowship dinner with parishioners and friends from the Sudanese community. The event was a fundraiser to provide scholarships for the youth of the Sudanese community to attend summer camp at Rock Point. Their efforts were bolstered by a $2,000 Alleluiafund grant!
About the Alleluiafund. Because of your generosity in 2017 and 2018, the Alleluiafund exceeded its goal. This means, not only did we meet our predetermined commitments to Rock Point Camp, Rock Point Property, and various local and global outreach ministries, but we were also able to provide additional funding for many more things that make you say, “Alleluia!” The Alleluiafund supports vital ministries that are beyond the capacity of our diocesan budget, and every dollar raised goes directly to selected ministries. Historically, the selected ministries have included Rock Point Camp, Rock Point Commons, and various other outreach ministries agreed upon at each year’s Annual Convention. In 2019, we agreed to focus on Rock Point, Rock Point Camp, and ministries related to the priorities set by our Presiding Bishop and the General Convention, which include reconciliation, evangelism, and creation care.
