Episcopal leaders use World Series to raise money for charity

From Peoria-

Episcopal leaders in Boston and St. Louis are using the World Series match-up between their teams to raise money for charity and boost awareness about sex trafficking and prostitution. Until the start of Game One on Wednesday, Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis and St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Boston will be collecting online donations. The money in the pot will go to a non-profit in the winning city that helps victims of sex trafficking.

If the Cardinals win, that money would go to Magdalene House, a non-profit that will open a house for abused women next year. The dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Mike Kinman, is the organization’s board president.
