Episcopal Relief and Development is the international and domestic disaster relief and community development arm of The Episcopal Church. It was founded at the start of the Second World War as the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief to assist European refugees. Since then, its mission has expanded to include emergency relief following natural disaster and war, as well as sustainable development of communities in economically disadvantaged regions. Learn more at www.EpiscopalRelief.org.
Dr. Robert W. Radtke has served as president of Episcopal Relief & Development since 2005. Prior to that he served in various senior-level posts at the Asia Society. At Episcopal Relief & Development, Rob has overseen a number of major initiatives, including NetsforLife®, the agency’s award-winning, flagship malaria prevention program; and the US Disaster Preparedness and Response Program, which helps Episcopal dioceses, congregations and other church institutions to both prepare for and respond to disasters in their local communities.
Help Sarah and Pamela Support Cancer Research! Pamela Smith and I are walking in the 5K Champion the Cure Challenge on August 14-15 to benefit research and clinical trials at the Lafayette Center in Brewer. As a participant in one of the clinical trials for colorectal cancer, I know how valuable it is to be able to take part in this research without going to Boston. There are currently 55 adult trials and 20 children's trials in Brewer! If you would like to support this research, as well as those of us dealing with cancer, we would greatly appreciate it. You can go to ctcchallenge.org and select "sponsor a participant", type in Sarah Flynn and "search". That will bring you to a donor page that you can fill out. Thank you all for your support of all kinds. It all helps! Sarah Flynn

St. Saviour’s Hosts Episcopal Relief & Development Photo Exhibition
In celebration of Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75th Anniversary, St. Saviour’s is hosting the organization’s traveling photo exhibition from Sunday, August 16 to Monday, August 31. Featuring 33 iconic photos of Episcopal Relief & Development’s work around the globe, the exhibition leads viewers through a vivid, intimate exploration of the organization’s history and programs.
The Rev. Tim Fleck says, “Bar Harbor is a place where paths cross from all over the earth. That’s why it’s so important and appropriate for St. Saviour’s to host this exhibit: to remind us and all our visitors of the ways that we are all connected through shared needs and resources.”
Through compelling images and insightful descriptions, the photo exhibition builds meaningful connections to Episcopal Relief & Development’s four core program areas: alleviating hunger, promoting health, creating economic opportunities and responding to disasters. Photos come from five continents and were chosen from over 20,000 images by curator Johanna Lehan, who has worked for The New Yorker and Newsweek.
As a capstone to the exhibit, Episcopal Relief and Development President Dr. Robert Radtke will be visiting MDI, preaching at a service of Evensong at St. John’s in Southwest Harbor at 6:30 PM on Saturday August 29, and preaching at the regular Sunday services at St. Saviour’s at 7:30 and 10:00 AM on Sunday, August 30.
The “AllHands75” e-docent app, available for iPhone and Android, provides enrichment while experiencing the exhibition in person, and acts as a virtual tour for remote viewing. The app features a variety of voices – including the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church and the President, staff and supporters of Episcopal Relief & Development – giving deeper detail and background for each image.
“It is incredibly moving to stand in front of these powerful images and hear from someone who was there in the midst of amazing transformation, or whose faith in the importance and impact of our work inspires deeper connection,” said Sean McConnell, Episcopal Relief & Development’s Director of Engagement. “Striving together with local partners, our programs truly engage communities in realizing their vision of a thriving future. I hope that this exhibition helps people to see what we can do when we act together to heal our hurting world.”
Episcopal Relief & Development works with more than 3 million people in nearly 40 countries worldwide to overcome poverty, hunger and disease through multi-sector programs that utilize local resources and expertise. An independent 501(c)(3) organization, Episcopal Relief & Development works closely with Anglican Communion and ecumenical partners to help communities rebuild after disasters and develop long-term strategies to create a thriving future. In 2014-15, the organization joins Episcopalians and friends in celebrating 75 Years of Healing a Hurting World.
