You are invited to join Bishop Provenzano and Episcopal Ministries of Long Island on October 12, 2022 for a "Celebration of Ministry" honoring Neighbors Being Human (St. Andrew's, Yaphank) and The St. Nick Fridge (Iglesia de la Santa Cruz + Bushwick Abbey). The celebration will take place at The Inn at New Hyde Park and commence at 6:30pm. 

This will be EMLI's first in-person celebration since 2019, and we truly look forward to welcoming you, breaking bread together, and sharing the inspiring work of faithful ministry partners who are bringing Christ's love from the pew to the public square across our diocese.

Neighbors Being Human: A Feeding Ministry Connecting Suffolk County

Volunteers at St. Andrew’s make it a priority to know the families by name and serve without judgement. Regular visitors at the pantry come for social connection as well as food.

The St. Nick Fridge: An Ever-Expanding Feeding Ministry in Bushwick

“EMLI Affinity Group meetings gave me both valuable information about what other food programs are doing, and much needed inspiration and fellowship. EMLI made me feel less alone and helped give me perspective and confidence while doing this at times frustrating and heartbreaking work."
