Friends of St. Aelred
The Friends of St. Aelred is an organization of LGBTQ Episcopalians and their friends and supporters. St. Aelred’s collects gifts each Christmas for children through the Giving Tree project; delivers poinsettias and lilies to shut-ins at Christmas and Easter; and supports Resurrection House through Easter dinner baskets and other activities. Each January they host a brunch to honor St. Aelred, a 12th-century abbot, author, and major figure in English church life who taught that friendship is a gift from God. They host the Spiritual Pride dinner and participate in the St. Pete Pride parade and street fair. Everybody is welcome to share in this vibrant ministry.
