Episcopal Impact Fund is the outreach arm of the Episcopal Diocese of California, partnering with our grantees and congregations throughout the Bay Area to address intergenerational poverty. Our focus on families and children, housing, health and education mirror the Episcopalian values of faithfulness, inclusiveness and compassion. The University of Chicago Glee Club, an inclusive “ensemble of low voices” under the direction of Burke Morton, performs a diverse repertoire, spanning genres from Renaissance polyphony to 1950s doo-wop and pop, English sea chanteys, school songs, and much more. With a passion for music and commitment to excellence, U Chicago Glee Club members are singers, but also scholars and well-rounded individuals. This is the glee club’s first California tour, following previous performances in New York, Boston, Virginia and throughout the Midwest and the Chicagoland area. Founded in 1891, St. Mary’s is a community of curious, faithful people who delight in the goodness of creation, celebrate the bonds of love and affection between neighbors, and share the good news of God’s love for the world. We seek to support the flourishing of individuals and families through five core practices: worshiping weekly, praying daily, learning constantly, serving joyfully, and living generously. With vibrant offerings for children, youth and families, thriving Young Adult and LGBT groups, and a deep commitment to community engagement, St. Mary’s seeks to live into the important questions of faith through common prayer and inter-generational life.
