Mary Morton Parsons Foundation Challenge Underway!

Westminster Canterbury Richmond is growing from our roots in faith. We are grateful for a long legacy of generosity that has helped us get to where we are today. That generosity began as long ago as 1971, when Mary Morton Parsons herself was a huge part of the inception of our community. She made a gift that helped us buy the Westbrook property that has been our home for the past 45 years!

The legacy continues as we create a new Spiritual Center that embraces our faith traditions and welcomes people of all faiths. To help, Westminster Canterbury Foundation is raising $4 million toward the creation of our new Spiritual Center. So far, generous donors have given $2.1 million toward the project. We need your help!

The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation has given us a 2:1 challenge grant. If we raise $600,000, they will give $300,000 to the Spiritual Center. Your gift may be toward any area that is supported by generous gifts, such as the Fellowship Program, the Area of the Greatest Need, the Spiritual Center and more.

You can read all the details about the challenge and the Spiritual Center in our latest issue of The Lamp. See the latest construction progress video.

Thank you for your inspiring generosity! If you are interested in participating in the challenge, contact Anita Adkins at (804) 264-6202 or or make a gift now!
