WINDSOR, VERMONT – Announced in May 2018, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Windsor made a difference across the globe by sponsoring a mission trip to rural parts of Cambodia, where volunteers worked in healthcare clinics. With modest grant funding to supplement monies already raised, the mission team was able to purchase medical supplies, provide a stipend for each Cambodian college or medical student who served as an interpreter, and pay for the interpreters’ food and lodging. The grant was a $500 match of the congregation’s contribution.
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.
