Support Our Ministries

“Diocese” is not an archaic word for a piece of church bureaucracy. It’s a living, breathing community of faith that draws from history and traditions, its diversity and common liturgical language, in ways that enrich our ministries and invite others to join us as we feed the hungry, welcome the lonely, and care for our communities.

Bishop’s Appeal

Within our community of faith, each of us has the opportunity to live out our Baptismal Covenant–to seek and serve Christ in all persons.

Donate to the Bishop’s Appeal. You can make a difference throughout our community to help those most impacted by the pandemic.

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal supports ministries that transform lives and heal the world. Each year since 2002, the Diocese of Virginia has awarded grants to assist with a broad range of ministries, both at home and throughout the world. These vital programs depend on your gifts, which come from God’s bounty, to empower ministries, transform lives, and strengthen the work of our congregations.
