Everybody can fall on hard times and the Episcopal church has long dedicated funds to help assist people in the congregation and the surrounding communities who need assistance with gas money, food, train fare, and other occasional needs. These funds come primarily from the open plate offerings on the first Sunday of each month. Additional money may be donated or raised by the congregation specifically for this use. The rector and/or almoner is in charge of distributing and managing these funds.
Love is one thing we definitely aren’t in short supply of at Calvary! The Love Fund is to be used for one-time grants to meet emergency and extraordinary needs of the members of the congregation and their households. The Love Fund was set up under Father Castle’s direction, and receives ongoing funding from donations specifically designated for the fund.
