The Daily Office Network has two purposes:
• to help proclaim that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God, the Messiah and Savior of the world;
• and to put Morning and Evening Prayer services online in a convenient, illustrated format for the edification and empowerment of the saints.
Our Proclaiming mission is evangelical, directed outward to the world at large in English and Spanish, while our Praying mission is intercessory, directed inward to the care and nurturance of the souls who make up the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, and then directed outward with prayer for the world’s healing and peace.
“Mission” is part proclaiming the Gospel and part feeding and healing people. We are proud to support these mission partners with 11% of our budget.
Rosebud Episcopal Mission, South Dakota
The Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota offers an active ministry on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, including a dozen churches with programs for children, youth, suicide prevention, cultural pride, advocacy and home heating supplies.
St. André’s School, Mithon, Haiti
With the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, we help sponsor Lunches and Lessons to 200 pupils, K-6, in the impoverished village of Mithon. We buy lunch for the students and help pay their teachers’ salaries, because the best way to lift Haiti out of poverty is to educate its children.
Cuttington University School of Nursing, Liberia
Cuttington University is known as the “Harvard of Liberia,” and its professional School of Nursing won international praise for its effective response to the Ebola epidemic a few years ago; the U.S. Navy used Cuttington Nursing’s facilities and personnel to direct the U.S. military’s humanitarian efforts. Every Cuttington nurse helps improve public health in this West African nation with historic ties to the United States and to The Episcopal Church.
Anglican Social Center of Brasilia, Brasil
Public schools in inner-city Brasilia are only open a few hours a day, and every year students fall farther behind their peers. The Anglican Social Center, another IndyDio partner, helps bridge the educational gap, with lessons in language, math, sciences and computers.
Faculty of Health Sciences, Episcopal University of Haiti
The Episcopal University in Leogane, Haiti hosts the nation’s oldest, biggest nursing school, and 95% of its graduates remain in Haiti years later to staff clinics and hospitals, and provide health education. Our support of nursing schools is our most strategic investment in public health in developing nations.
You Can Help
As an online-only congregation, we know that we can’t organize a pop-up clinic in Liberia or build a school in an obscure Haitian village – but we can support those who are already doing these things and more. That’s why we commit 10% of our annual budget to these life-giving (in some cases, lifesaving) projects.
It may be hard for any individual to be a missionary, but together we can all be missionaries and evangelists – as every Christian is called to be. So help us help the people on the front lines battling disease and offering hope – add your voice to ours and click here.
