Support for MEESC

The Minnesota Episcopal Environmental Stewardship Commission (MEESC) is a dynamic pace setter for understanding, reflection and action in our Diocese and the Episcopal Church in America and has been so for 15 years.

During these years we have had several levels of financial support from our Diocese. For the last several years it has been minimal, although gratefully received.

As public awareness of concerns about the environment has grown, our work has taken on a new energy and urgency. We are now called in many new and exciting directions: to mentor churches, set process and policy and develop liturgical and educational materials in our faith communities.

As we all know financial resources are a necessary part of these responses so that we can continue in God's call to us to be responsible stewards of creation.

We graciously ask that you consider a monitory donation to MEESC as a portion of your outreach funding or through an individual gift so that we may continue in this urgent and necessary work we are called to do. Personal gifts are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to "MEESC" or "Minnesota Episcopal Environmental Stewardship Commission" and mailed to:
