Ways to help those in need in Hawaii
We at St Peter’s can come together as a group to do our part to help with immediate relief efforts in Hawaii. If you would like to donate through St Peter’s, as this part of the Body of Christ, make out a check to St Peter’s and put Hawaii in the memo line. The St Peter’s collection will go to The Diocese of Hawaii to The Bishop’s Pastoral Fund with a note that this is from our church, St Peter’s, here in The Diocese of Virginia. The Diocese of Hawaii will put this money to work through A Cup of Cold Water, the homeless assistance ministry run by the four Episcopal Churches on the island of Maui.
