Church Periodical Club

Founded in 1888, this under-publicized group raises money to support seminarians in our diocese, particularly through supporting the purchase of books, which is a vital, and expensive part of seminary training. You can help us support our seminarians by observing CPC in your local parish. More information and dates for CPC Sunday are listed under the ECW General Calendar link and in the ECW yearbook.

CPC offerings can be mailed to the CPC Chair:

Our Prayer

Bless 0 Lord, The Church Periodical Club, that it may be an instrument for the spread of your Word throughout the world. Grant to its officers wisdom and patience, to its members perseverance and the spirit of sharing that asks no return. Bring more to take part in its mission and ministry. Bless our gifts and those who receive them, to the enrichment of individual lives, that we all may be servants of the risen Lord. Amen.

Miles of Pennies

The Miles of Pennies Fund was established by the Church Periodical Club in 1988 on the 100th anniversary of that organization. The Miles of Pennies Fund Committee awarded its first grants in 1991. The maximum grant given by Miles of Pennies is $844.80 which represents one mile of pennies. The grants serve the needs of children from kindergarten through high school wherever there is a need.
