United Thank Offering (UTO) Spring Ingathering is Sunday, May 6th. Look for the blue and white boxes or the envelopes in the pews. UTO is a ministry of the Episcopal Church Women of the Diocese of Virginia for the mission of the whole church. Your loose change, cash and checks are used in missionary work, training, pension funds, building loans, scholarships and overseas development. UTO is based on the theological premise that it is good to give thanks to God.
