“The Episcopal Church Investment Committee met last week, opening with prayer for peace hours before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In keeping with The Episcopal Church’s firm stand against this continued and escalating aggression, our investment managers sold the church’s Russian stocks, which constituted a negligible portion of overall investment assets.”

Declaración de Kurt Barnes, director financiero de la Iglesia Episcopal, acerca de la desinversión de Rusia


“El Comité de Inversiones de la Iglesia Episcopal se reunió la semana pasada e inició la junta con una oración por la paz, pocas horas antes de la invasión rusa de Ucrania. De acuerdo con la posición firme de la Iglesia Episcopal contra esta agresión continua y creciente, nuestros administradores de inversiones vendieron las acciones rusas de la iglesia, las cuales constituían una parte insignificante de los activos de inversión totales”.

N. Kurt Barnes
Tesorero y Director Financiero
