Dear Diocese of Fort Worth Parishes and Missions,

Each fall, the women of the Diocese gather for their annual Congress and Ingathering for the Anglican Relief and Development Fund.

Will you help out?

During the months of August and September, please encourage your congregation to give to the ARDF.  Insure them that because it is Anglican based, their monies are guaranteed to be used in relief and development efforts all over the world.  Right now, ARDF is assisting refugees in South Sudan and relieving the victims of massive flooding in Myanmar.

Please have your parishioners make their checks out to your parish or mission with ARDF on the memo line, and then have your treasurer write one check to the Diocese with ARDF on that memo line.

You may mail that check to the Diocese, but it is our hope one or more of the women of your parish or mission will travel to the Congress on Saturday, October 3 at Christ the Redeemer Anglican, Fort Worth and present it to the Bishop during the offering at Mass.

If you would like “Mite Boxes”, contact ARDF at and they will send however many you need—free!

Thank you for supporting ARDF and its efforts. Together, our pocket change can change lives!

Julie Cosgrove

ARDF Chair for the Diocesan Churchwomen
