Episcopal World Hunger Sunday

Today is Episcopal World Hunger Sunday. With your help, we're setting our sights on the important new goal for 2004 and beyond! In support of the United Nation's global Millenium Development Goals, our vision is to cut in half by 2015 the number of children who suffer from hunger in the U.S. and worldwide.

Food for children in Africa

Please help with a prayer, donation or just by increasing awarness about world hunger problems.
