All of our undesignated plate offerings on the first Sunday of each month go to our Rector’s Discretionary (Benevolence) Fund. This Sunday, Fr. Berto has designated that all such offerings will be sent to the EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT HURRICANE HARVEY FUND. Please be generous – both cash and check are welcome!  Donations to this fund will supply critical necessities and long-term help to those recovering from the devastating floods. If paying by check, please indicate in memo line “Emmanuel-ERD Houston.” You can donate directly through ERD here.  You can read or hear the Presiding Bishop’s comments here.
