The Rector's Pastoral and Outreach Fund is used to help those in need. It is administered by the rector with the assistance of the Senior Warden and Treasurer. The fund underwrites the Sunday Supper Ministry, provides assistance to those in need, and supports worthy community outreach efforts such as Episcopal Relief and Development, the Life Foundation, the Hawaiian Humane Society, and Ho'olo Na Pua. Funded by the parish operating budget, frequently the need for the fund outstrips the resources of the fund.
Members and friends of St. Mark's may make donations to support this ministry, and it is a St. Mark's tradition to reserve the offerings of All Saints and All Souls for the Rector's Pastoral and Outreach Fund. Please make your check payable to St. Mark's Episcopal Church, and designate your gift for the Pastoral Fund on the memo line. Mahalo for your generosity.
