Appleton Episcopal Ministries

Focusing on Children in the Macon Convocation

For more than 140 years Appleton has been a diocesan ministry with a focus on children.  Appleton Family Ministries (now known as Appleton Episcopal Ministries) was begun in Macon as a home for orphans of Confederate soldiers and changed with the times to become group homes serving various needs and an outdoor therapeutic center. It now operates as an after-school program for at-risk children and a mentoring program for their parents.

A special offering for Appleton Episcopal Ministries – to be taken in all churches "on Thanksgiving Day or between the Sundays preceding and following Thanksgiving Day, both inclusive"– is written in the diocesan canons (No. 24).
