ERD/Episcopal Relief & Development

The Coordinator of Episcopal Relief & Development in Province IV is appointed be a liaison with the diocesan coordinators in the province and represent Episcopal Relief & Development to the provincial leadership. In addition, the coordinator is to nurture and coordinate Episcopal Relief & Development efforts within each diocese of the province. Finally, the coordinator is to help maintain cohesion between the province and the Episcopal Church and facilitate communication among various ERD ministries in the province and church-wide.

At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was officially designated as a time to encourage dioceses, congregations and individuals to remember and support the life-saving work of Episcopal Relief & Development. We encourage every parish in Province IV to celebrate Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent, or another convenient Sunday during the Lenten season.
