Our diocesan Canon to the Ordinary, the Rev. Cn. Arienne Davison, has awarded us a COVID-Relief grant in the amount of $13,333. In her letter informing us of the grant she wrote:
Dear people of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church,
On behalf of the people of the Diocese of Olympia, I want to thank you for the ministry to the unhoused and at-risk members of the Shoreline community. We understand that COVID has revealed and exacerbated the existing inequalities and made your ministry of service all the more difficult.
In gratitude for the many ways the people of St. Dunstan’s have worked to continue and even scale up ministries to the unhoused in the Shoreline neighborhood, I am pleased to award you a onetime COVID-Relief grant in the amount of $13,333.
Thank you again for the hope you bring to the neighbors you have been called to serve,
The Rev. Cn Arienne Davison
Canon to the Ordinary
Diocese of Olympia
This is a wonderful acknowledgement of all that you have done through this time of pandemic crisis to bless our neighbors and especially those who are hungry or unhoused. Here is the full letter from Canon Davison.
