Outreach Sunday for United Thank Offering


May 10

Sunday, May 10th (Mother’s Day) will be an Outreach Sunday for the United Thank Offering (UTO). This year, 100% of all UTO donations will be given to Episcopal/Anglican ministries responding directly to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.

UTO encourages people to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings, and make an offering for each blessing. The collection on Mother’s Day recognizes UTO’s history. In the late 19th century, the Women’s Auxiliary of the Missionary Society instituted an annual thank offering of prayers and donations from Episcopal women, which later became known as the United Thank Offering.

Information on UTO-funded projects around the nation and the world can be found in the 2019 annual report.
