'Iolani School's annual all-school Christmas Chapel Service will be held on Thursday, Dec. 18, in the Lower Gym. This Christmas, our offering will go to Episcopal Relief & Development, an organization of the Episcopal Church USA that is celebrating “75 Years of Healing a Hurting World.” ERD began as the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, providing assistance to refugees fleeing Europe during World War II. It has grown into a global relief and development agency that today partners with three million people in almost 40 countries every year. To learn more about the work ERD is doing, view this short video.
