Here is your opportunity to both support ECC (our Episcopal Camp and Conference Center) and our companion relationship with the Diocese of Louisiana! LARI, the Louisiana/Rhode Island subcommittee of the Companion Diocese Committee, is seeking to bring campers from New Orleans to ECC for the four sessions serving kids 13-17.
There are four ways you can help:
- Sponsor a camper $335-345 per session
- Make a donation toward a campership (any amount appreciated)
- Make a donation toward airfare ($200-$400)
- Donate frequent flyer miles
As we continue to build our relationship with the Diocese of Louisiana, and especially with the people and congregations of New Orleans, members of LARI would love to come and talk with your parish about the opportunities this covenant relationship holds for all of us.
The Diocese of Louisiana has made a commitment to the renewal of New Orleans, and especially to addressing some of that city’s most intractable problems of poverty and racism. LARI believes that we have a lot to learn about our own challenges here in Rhode Island by working with our brothers and sisters in Louisiana, and we are eager to share our enthusiasm for this ministry around the diocese.
Connecting youth from our two dioceses is one way to strengthen the bonds between us. It will be a great opportunity for our own kids, as well as for the young people who will be our guests this summer. Please help us bring a little bit of Louisiana to ECC!
For financial donations, please make checks out to The Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island, with “LARI ECC Scholarship Fund” on the memo line. To donate frequent flyer miles, please contact Jim Rezendes via email: email@example.com.
Thank you for your support and good will.
The Rev. Clare Fischer-Davies, Mary Ann Kolakowski and Jim Rezendes for LARI
