Jubilee Grants Awarded to Dallas Ministries

    Jubilee Ministries, the Domestic Poverty network of the Episcopal Church, has awarded $67,000 in 54 grants to support mission and ministry in 35 dioceses for 2017.

    Jubilee Ministries are congregations or agencies with connections to the Episcopal Church, designated by diocesan bishops and affirmed by Executive Council, whose mission work affects the lives of those in need, addressing basic human needs and justice issues

    The grants help to ensure that Jubilee carries out the charge to be a “ministry of joint discipleship in Christ with poor and oppressed people.” (GC resolutions 2012-D094)

    Applicants were reviewed by a committee representing parish leaders, diocesan Jubilee Officers, Executive Council members, and Episcopal Church staff.
