Community Ministries

All God's Creatures Animal Ministry

To support the Mission and Ministry of All God's Creatures at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church

Moving Forward

The group is open to everyone. Subject areas shared and explored will be coping skills as well as hope for those who are grieving a loss. Your loss may be a loved one, a job, a friendship, a home etc. All attendees are reminded that things discussed during the group meetings are confidential.

Hunger Ministries

Iona-Hope regularly supports the Gladiolus Food Pantry and the South Fort Myers Food Pantry and does collections several times per year to receive food and cash donations to help our community food pantries provide nourishment to families in need.

Justice Ministry

The LIFE Organization is comprised of many different congregations, who in turn represent many different traditions.  Each of our congregations believes something different about the nature and name of god. But, each of us shares a commitment to pursue justice guided by our own faith.  We find, in the things we share, the strength that unity can bring.  We vow to respect each other for the things we share, and for the ways we are different.

Pastoral Ministry Team (Community of Hope)

Pastoral ministers serve as an ongoing spiritual and sacramental connection between the church, those in the hospital and homebound members through regular visitations, prayer and bringing communion to those who cannot get to church services

Quiet Days & Spirituality Programs

Our spirituality programs are intended to help you deepen your relationship with God through learning and praticing opportunities that are meaningful to you. We offer quiet days periodically.
