On March 10th, Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, together with the Diocesan Board and the diocesan Global Mission Committee, initiated a matching gift initiative to encourage contributions for Episcopal Relief & Development’s humanitarian aid efforts with the people of Ukraine. Just sixteen days later, the people and parishes of the Diocese had contributed over $25,000, and this amount has been matched by the Diocese for a total of $50,000 from the Diocese of Central New York.
“I am so proud of the generous people of the Diocese of Central New York,” said Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe. “We are living in to our commitment to Jesus’ Way of Love, which calls us to respond to the needs of others as we seek a world healed by love. Thank you.”
The generosity continues. Throughout the Diocese people and parishes are continuing to host fundraisers and gather offerings in support of the people of Ukraine.
