Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Partnerships

Memorial & Gift Trust Fund

Most Gracious God, my fullest thanks to you this morning for caring about my life. I often wonder how you have time to give so much attention and recognition to so many, let alone me!

Could the good news be that I HAVE your fullest attention and your total love - and not just me, but all persons at all times and all places?

If I could help you out, if I could share even a small portion of the Love you have afforded me, I would be pleased and honored to accept the challenge and the call - today. Amen


~The Rt. Rev. Michael Creighton, Bishop of Central Pennsylvania




A permanent endowment fund created by memorial gifts and gifts to give tanks, to honor and to celebrate people and events. 

The United Thank Offering Memorial and Gift Trust Fund was established in 1982 as a permanent trust. Gifts enable ongoing prayer and remembrance. Names are permanently recorded in a book which is kept at the Episcopal Church Center and displayed at each Triennial Meeting of the Episcopal Church Women.
