International Outreach

In all of our Outreach opportunities, the people of Holy Comforter live into our Baptismal covenant where we promise to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself,” and to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being."  Internationally, our commitments include a new focus on the issue of human trafficking and modern-day slavery through our support of the International Justice Mission.  We also continue to support our companion church, Iglesia Espiritu Santo in Santa Rita Honduras, and we have also begun to support Shoulder to Shoulder, a robust medical mission that operates throughout Honduras.  We also continue to support Anglican efforts abroad through our support of the Compass Rose Society, Five Talents, and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
