Christmas In July

Merry Christmas!

IN JULY!!! from the ECC

Mary Magdalene Feast Day is July 22.  

Let us join together to celebrate July

as Mary Magdalene month

and Christmas in July.

The ECC community is experiencing the need for clergy to sustain our growth. We face the challenge of shepherding our communities into an inclusive future in which all our clergy are representative of the church where all are welcomed and included. 

To this end, the ECC Mary Magdalene Society supports:

• ECC youth through summer camps, service projects

• Seminarians/clergy, who are ECC affiliated, with economic needs

• Student debt relief

• Incardination expenses

• Candidate ordination expenses

To all parishioners – Please consider making a special direct donation during the month of July to MMS in honor of and in gratitude for the clergy serving your parish community.  

Perhaps your donation may be the equivalent cost of a Starbucks coffee drink, a double dip ice cream, a Dunkin’ donut and coffee, Krispy Kreme donuts, a favorite beverage or simply put, a donation that comes from a more generous heart.  

Donate any Sunday in July by marking “special offering” and writing MMS on your envelope in the offering plate. Or if donating via ZELLE, please indicate that it is for July Special Offering/MMS.

Meet some MMS Grant Recipients!

Over the next few months Mother Tammy Fuqua with the MMS Advisory Committee will bring us interviews with MMS grant recipients. These interviews will allow us to hear how the recipients will use the funds awarded to them by the society, and why these grants are so important to the future growth of the ECC. 

Please take time to review again grant recipients from her home church of Holy Angels, Gianni Passarella and Ricky Villarreal.  We look forward to her upcoming interviews.

Be a part of continuing the mission of the

Mary Magdalene Society and our beloved ECC!

The purpose of our Mary Magdalene Society (MMS) is to have an endowment that creates a permanent financial foundation upon which grants can be made based upon the annual interest earnings.

These grants are intended to develop new ECC clergy and increase youth programs within the ECC.

With the internal MMS organizational structure now in place, our journey together on the road to building this endowment and making grants moves into a higher gear.
