The Bishop’s Dollar Fund
The season of Lent offers each one of us an annual invitation to reflect on our blessings as members of the body of Christ. The movement to share out of our gratitude is one of the fruits of faithful reflection. Bishop Mark Bourlakas encourages generous support of The Bishop’s Dollar fund to continue to address a variety of needs throughout the diocese not otherwise covered through our annual budget. You can mail donations to the Diocesan Office (PO Box 2279, Roanoke, VA 24009) or donate online at www.dioswva.org.
