Alleluia Fund for Outreach

Please support the Alleluia Fund for Outreach with your end of year gift today!

The Alleluia Fund for Outreach is a vital diocesan ministry. By supporting the Alleluia Fund with your financial contribution, you join Episcopalians across the Diocese who are generously responding to our sisters and brothers in need. As donors to the Alleluia Fund for Outreach, we are able to accomplish things that would likely be impossible for us to do as individual Christians. Food pantries, after school programs, shelters for those most vulnerable, and critically needed international programs – all these are among the vital ministries of our Alleluia Fund partners.

Grace and peace,

Carlye J. Hughes
Bishop of Newark
