Welcome from Mary Beth Welsh
EMLI EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
From the first news about the Covid-19 global pandemic, EMLI received unexpected donations, one from a bishop and others from church members, with notes saying they wanted to help those who are helping others suddenly in need -- sheltering in place or surviving in place with no shelter. Also, parishes began asking EMLI to help them respond to the growing crisis.
An emergency EMLI FRONTLINE FUND was created, both to request donations and in turn to assist parish Covid-19 ministries. As many as possible. As quickly as possible.
Here, we are sharing profile stories from leaders and volunteers receiving FRONTLINE support, as well as sharing stories about other churches and volunteers across the diocese, all facing their own health risks but courageously serving in Frontline Ministries. Christ is on the Frontline.
We are pleased to share these Profiles with you from the FRONTLINE.
Inspired by the work done by the Garden of St. Francis in Bellmore, our Common Ground garden is a cooperative effort among our two North Fork Churches and Treiber Farms, Episcopal Ministries of Long Island and a host of volunteers from the wider community.
We have 32 raised beds in full production - raising vegetables and giving them away.
