Province seeks applications

for Constable Fund grants

    Province IV is accepting applications for grants from the 2016-2017 Constable Fund, which provides funding for ministry projects not included in The Episcopal Church budget, particularly proposals that involve religious education.

     Province IV, like the church’s other eight provinces, each may recommend one grant proposal. September 30 is the deadline for ministry groups within Province IV to submit an application.  The Province IV Executive Committee will review all applications received by that date, and in turn, offer one recommendation to the Constable Fund by its deadline of November 1.

     You may download the Constable Fund application form here, or at the website:

 http://www.generalconvention.org/ec/constable-fund 

     Please submit Province IV applications to Gene Willard, Administrator, at his email:

p4admin@earthlink.net.

     “This is an exciting funding opportunity for faithful, creative people in our Province to initiate or widen the scope of their ministry,” said Province IV President Angela Daniel.

     Applications ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 have been considered in recent granting cycles.

Provincial Letter seeks 

to unify all God's people

Province IV President Angela Daniel and Vice President The Rt. Rev. Don Johnson have written a public letter in the wake of recent violence in the US, calling on all God's children "to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to respect the dignity of every human being."

Here is the complete letter.

It goes on to invite individuals, parishes and dioceses to envision ways the Province can help unite all people through initiatives to be funded through the new Province IV grant pool.
