Little Blue Box

The United Thank Offering was started by The Episcopal Church in 1887 to support missionary work at home and abroad. It became known as the Blue Box Offering because every day, coins were dropped in a little blue box in thanksgiving for our daily blessings. St. Margaret’s Church has supported the UTO since1964. Blue UTO envelopes are in the Narthex or you may use your own envelope.Jacqui Poarch, our representative to the Diocesan Convention, will present our parish offering to Bishop Provenzano on Nov. 16.The L.I. diocesan offering will be added to offerings from all other dioceses to provide grants to support innovative missions and ministries in the Episcopal Church. Please make your check payable to St. Margaret’s Church with UTO in the memo area.
