CtR has created a Relief Fund to handle crisis-driven financial needs within our congregation. The purpose of this fund is to enable the clergy and Leadership Council of CtR to be able to assist parishioners in a physical monetary way during times of societal crisis. Many people are dealing with uncertain financial situations due to the current COVID pandemic and this Relief Fund is intended to not only financially help those who have emergent needs in our congregation, but also to help those affected find assistance wherever available. The Relief Fund Committee will help applicants review their current situation and determine what type of assistance would best meet their needs. The committee will be comprised of one member of the clergy and two members of the Leadership Council.
Needs will be addressed individually with complete confidentiality. The Relief Fund Committee will begin accepting applications immediately and will be reviewed internally. I have attached a copy of the purpose statement, application, and disbursement form to this email. All applications and questions concerning the Relief Fund may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be addressed by the committee members.
The Leadership Council has approved an initial amount be transferred into the fund from the church’s account but would like to encourage parishioners to give specifically to the Relief Fund as they are able and led. If you would like to do so, please write a check with “CtR Relief Fund” in the memo line, and mail to Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church P.O. Box 9632, Norfolk, VA 23505. You can also give online through our Paypal account – please write “CtR Relief Fund” in the notes section before processing your donation. If, after the COVID crisis is over, there is money remaining in the account, it will be used for other missions as determined by current needs and Council approval.
