Welcome To Advent. Peace Be With You.

Our congregational focus is now--as it has been for more than 130 years-- on worship, service, formation and fellowship.

We're proud to carry on the traditions that have made us a vibrant parish for these many years. We're also a forward-looking parish committed to making Christ visible in our community and the world.

2018 IRA Charitable Rollover

Have you taken your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) yet for 2018?

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a contribution to the Episcopal Church of the Advent directly from your Traditional IRA simply by instructing the plan administrator to make the tansfer directly to Advent as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). You are allowed to transfer up to $100,000 a year to the charities of your choice.  All rollovers must be completed by December 31 of the year which the contribution was to count against taxable income.  Your gift will be transferred directly to Advent, will not be reported as taxable income and will count toward your minimal distribution requirements for 2018.  Most importantly, your generous support will help sustain Advent’s work empowering our congregation to make Christ visible in the world.  To learn more about making a donation from your IRA, talk with your financial advisor regarding any specific questions you may have.  Please contact Kathy Corkadel in the church office at (610) 444-4624 or email her @ kgebhart23@yahoo.com.
