Holly Day Supports Episcopal Relief and Development
Every December the people of Grace Church invite the entire island to a day of food, fun, fellowship and the opportunity to purchase homemade holiday decorations, hand made crafts suitable for Christmas gifts and a variety of foods. The funds raised go directly to benefit the work of Episcopal Relief and Development, formerly known as the Presiding Bishops Fund for World Relief. This fun(d) raiser is a special time for the parish because in addition to raising much needed funds for global relief projects, it also provides an important social opportunity for the congregation as well as the broader community.
