Episcopal Relief and Development
Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) is the compassionate response of The Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world. Hearing God's call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being, Episcopal Relief and Development serves to bring together the generosity of Episcopalians and others with the needs of the world. ERD faithfully administers the funds that are received from The Episcopal Church and raised from individual parishes and other sources. It provides relief in times of disaster and promotes sustainable development by identifying and addressing the root causes of suffering. St. Andrew's supports ERD, particularly at times of natural disaster.
