Providing support to our brothers and sisters in Cuba has never been more difficult…but has never been more necessary. The Friends of the Episcopal Church in Cuba has launched project Feliz Navidad Cuba 2022!
The plan is to provide a joyous Christmas dinner celebration for each Episcopal community across Cuba.
During her recent visit to the United States, Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio of the Episcopal Diocese of Cuba shared that the current situation in Cuba is the worst she has seen in her 40 years there. One of the most critical issues facing communities across the country is a tremendous shortage of food—especially meat. For perspective, when it is available:
- 1 pound of pork costs about 10% of a monthly salary.
- A box of 2 dozen eggs costs 20% of a monthly salary.
That is why the Friends of the Episcopal Church in Cuba has launched project Feliz Navidad Cuba 2022!
They plan to provide a community Christmas meal and celebration for every parish and mission community of the Episcopal Diocese in Cuba. It is a very tangible expression of love and support of our brothers and sisters in Cuba.
The Friends will work with each clergy member to provide funds to enable them to organize a Christmas meal and celebration in each of the communities they serve. If food is not available locally, particularly meat, the Friends of the Episcopal Church in Cuba can purchase meat that’s already in Cuba and ship it to each clergy member.
Each community meal will cost about $300. That totals $16,000 to serve all 51 parishes and mission communities.
Please donate whatever you can to help us lift the spirits of our Cuban brothers and sisters. Share with them, in a real and tangible way, the community they share with The Episcopal Church in the United States.
Church of the Redeemer has a goal to raise $300, the cost to provide one community meal.

Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
