“For over 40 years, Episcopal Impact Fund has proudly honored our city’s patron, St. Francis, who taught us to ‘preach the gospel. Sometimes use words.’ Their dedication to lifting up our most vulnerable and confronting the scourge of poverty in our community has inspired countless people to live their faith through action. The 2020 Night of Light event is a beautiful celebration of Episcopal Impact Fund’s extraordinary service to the Bay Area and the tireless individuals who strengthen and enrich our community.” -CONGRESSWOMAN NANCY PELOSI, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE

Join us for a great evening!
