Each year A ministry of St. Vincent's Episcopal Church titled: "Coins for Change" partners with missions and parishes all across the island of Cuba to provide Vacation Bible Schools to children and their parents.
For many children and adults this will be their first significant experience with Jesus Christ and the Church after decades of oppression and religious persecution. They will sing songs, play games, listen to stories, pray, do arts and crafts, and make memories that will last a lifetime. But most of all they will come to know God’s love through the clergy and lay leaders serving them.
A maximum grant of $200.00 hosts 40-50 participants for four days of activities. All we are asking for is a pledge which is as simple as dropping your loose change into a jar. Beginning each year in September and continuing through May, Coins for Change invites Sunday school classes, churches, non-profit organizations, businesses, and private donors to share their change so that together we can promote change.
Last year Coins for Change sponsored 10 Vacation Bible Schools. This year we have set an ambitious goal of providing 20 grants by 2020. We invite you to find out more for yourself and join the campaign. Email Fr. Alex Andujar at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 727-201-1891. We look forward to continuing to work with you as we support the mission of the Church to “restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ”.
