2020 Lenten Calendar Announced

The Rev. Canon Michelle Walker, Associate Staff Officer for the United Thank Offering

One of the biggest rewards of being involved with the United Thank Offering is seeing the amazing work and lessons learned thanks to the blessings acknowledged through those little Blue Boxes. We are happy to share some of those incredible stories with you again in this third year of the UTO Lenten Devotional Calendar! This calendar will introduce you to the recipients of the 2019 UTO Grants and 2019 Young Adult and Seminarian Grants.

In addition to information about UTO Grant recipients, the calendar also features a Lenten challenge to help you fill your Blue Box. Each day of Lent, we will post on Facebook not only a grant recipient story but also an item in your local home or community for which you might be grateful. For each of those items you encounter regularly, we ask that you consider making a Blue Box donation. It’s a new way of being grateful for the blessings that surround you.

Please look for the printable version of the UTO Lenten Devotional Calendar in an upcoming Episcopal Church press release, at www.episcopalchurch.org/uto, and on our blog at www.unitedthankoffering.com. And be sure to follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UnitedThankOffering for the daily grant site updates.
