|LECUSA Chairman’s Easter Message - 2017
“Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!” My family and I extend a Happy and Blessed Easter to all our LECUSA members and friends. Christ’s resurrection gives us hope for a new life. It tells the whole world that we worship and serve a living Lord, Jesus Christ. We celebrate today and every Sunday the fact that God cares so much that he gets involve with the world he made and the people he made. That God offers to each one of us a life full of wholeness, full of goodness, full of love, and that he does this despite the fact that every human being to one degree or another, may reject him and his way of love.
Like Mary Magdalene in John’s Gospel, who became the first herald of the great news of Christ’s resurrection, I encourage each LECUSA member to tell the world that “Christ the Lord is risen, our joy that has no end.” Let me leave you with the words of our Presiding Bishop and Primate, the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, in his 2017 Easter Message: “Love wins. Go forth to be people of the Resurrection. Follow in the way of Jesus. Don’t be ashamed to love. Don’t be ashamed to follow Jesus.” May our risen Lord, Jesus Christ continue to bless each of us in all our endeavors. Happy Easter to one and all! Amen.

LECUSA $50,000 Project to Support Liberian Episcopal Schools and Ebola Orphans
The third point of LECUSA’s mission is: “To pull our individual and collective resources for the benefit of the Episcopal Church of Liberia.” LECUSA solicits your financial support to help us raise $50,000, in order to implement two major projects in the Episcopal Church of Liberia, effective April 2016 – April 2017.

- Render assistance (education, materials and resources) to the Liberian Ebola Orphans – approximately 2,000 or more orphans are struggling to survive after the deadly Ebola Virus Disease epidemic ended in Liberia.
LECUSA’s goal of raising $50,000 coincides with a national Episcopal Church USA 2016 appeal promoting West African relief and development outreach efforts. The Rev.
