United Thank Offering (UTO)

The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, individuals are invited to embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. UTO encourages people to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute the 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion.


Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts to the setting forward of thy kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits thy bounty has bestowed. so we may cheerfully share them  with thy children in all the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to thee, O thou Most Holy our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
Twelve congregations in the Diocese of Springfield participated in the UTO Spring 2021 Ingathering. Total Ingathering Gift: $2,723.13 Many Blessings to all!
