Foundation Day
(or Founders Day)

Each year on the Sunday closest to the consecration of our first Bishop, Archbishop Adler (26 June 1992) we collect an offering. This offering was originally made to present Archbishop Adler with funds to help him in his ministry, instead, he said that the best use of this money was to provide grants and loans to our churches that were building and expanding their churches.

These funds are used to help CEC missions and church build and expand their buildings.


The Foundation Offering is normally taken up by each Church.  Mail  Check made out to ‘CEC’ 50 Saint Thomas Pl, Malverne, NY 11565.  Offerings can also be made online.  See the button below.
