BURLINGTON, VERMONT – Consistently creative in its efforts to reach new audiences, the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Burlington hosted storyteller, author and minister Donald Davis in September 2018 for a three-part program, which included a workshop exploring the effective use of stories in preaching, an all-ages public performance, and a Sunday homily. The event, was made possible in part by $5,000 in grant funding and parish donations.
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.
