Thursdays at 2: UTO: Stairway to Greater Learning

May 17, 2018

On Thursday, May 17, Thursdays at 2, a favorite and popular feature produced by the Office of Communications, presents the video UTO: Stairway to Greater Learning.

The United Thank Offering is a gratitude ministry of the Episcopal Church to support innovative mission and ministry in the whole Church. Known worldwide as UTO, the United Thank Offering awards grants for new projects and programs that address innovative approaches to ministries within their communities that meet the stated focus for the year.  In the video, Evelyn Bolanof, Executive Director of the Work Station at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, in Richmond, CA, (Diocese of California) shares how receiving a UTO grant allowed the church to expand the number of young people in their free afterschool program. The UTO grant provided a staircase opening up the use of three additional classrooms.

UTO: Stairway to Greater Learning is here.

Thursdays at 2 is a weekly preview of Episcopal Church innovative ministries. Every Thursday at 2 pm Eastern, a new video illustrating the work of congregations and individuals will be posted on the Episcopal Church's Facebook page here and YouTube Channel here.

Produced by the Episcopal Church Office of Communications, for more information contact Mike Collins, Episcopal Church Manager of Multimedia.
