United Thank Offering

The people of St. Peter’s are encouraged to use the blue United Thank Offering boxes (found on the Parish Hall information table) as spiritual discipline of gratitude.  The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church.  UTO encourages people to notice everyday blessings, give thanks to God and make an offering for each blessing by dropping a few coins in a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute the 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion.

In May and November. we have an in-gathering and collect the UTO boxes.  Our collection is sent to the diocese, where it is recorded and sent on to the national UTO.
