Covenant 5 is a community of ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan educating and advocating for social justice. Covenant 5 ministries have long had an emphasis on advocacy as a way to fulfill the gospel imperative of seeking justice, peace and equality. The definition of advocacy ministry as we understand it focuses on striving to formulate and implement public policy, and supporting grass-roots efforts for social change and other justice concerns. Examples include organizing or joining legislative advocacy efforts in conjunction with the Episcopal Public Policy Network, sponsoring educational events, and letter-writing campaigns.
Diocesan ministry members of Covenant 5 include Disability Awareness, Economic Justice Commission, Episcopal Peace Fellowship, Prison Ministry, and TBLG Concerns.
Every year, Covenant 5 awards Peace and Justice Advocacy Grants to local and national agencies and organizations. To contact Covenant 5, send an email to Cov5@comcast.net.
