A US$35,000 grant from the United Thank Offering - an ongoing ministry co-ordinated by the national Episcopal Church Women - has helped the Greater Athens Anglican Chaplaincy in serving the needs of athletes and others attending the Olympic Games now under way in Athens.
St Paul's Anglican Church in Athens received a grant to make upgrades to the church for the chaplaincy ministry during the 2004 Summer Olympics, UTO's Patty Tourangeau reports. The grant paid for air conditioners, an emergency exit door, and renovations to make a restroom accessible to persons with disabilities.
Appreciation for the grant has been conveyed to UTO officers by the Revd Canon Malcolm Bradshaw on behalf of St Paul's, Athens.
Funding for UTO grants is raised largely from coins and bills placed in small blue boxes familiar to many across the Episcopal Church of the United States.
