Just a reminder that the YIG Hear Our Youth’s Voice surveys are now available. We are getting a great response so far but we want to hear from more, especially you and your youth and families. We are encouraging all parishes/clergy, families (parents, grandparents) and youth (12-25) to complete the 15 minute or less survey. If you have already submitted a survey, great thank you. Now please share the survey with someone else.
After you submit the survey please follow the instructions to be eligible to enter one of the three draws. Parishes and Families will be in a draw each for a free week at Camp Medley and youth will be in one of three $50 Cineplex gift cards. Simply doing the survey does NOT automatically enter you in the draw.
Gaza Crisis Response
The Al Ahli Arab Hospital (AAH) in Gaza City has sent an urgent call for help, as the death toll in Gaza continues to rise. On May 14 alone, more than 2,700 citizens were injured and 58 killed. The situation is critical at all area hospitals. The AAH is implementing an emergency response that includes a wing with additional beds and staff to treat the injured. The immediate needs include medical supplies, medicines, fuel for generators and support for those working non-stop to treat the wounded and traumatized.
AAH is a humanitarian institution in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. Its mandate embraces a rights-based approach to treatment and provides health care without discrimination on the basis of faith, gender, social class or political affiliation.
