For those who have all they want or need, consider giving a “Gift of Grace” to a charity in their honor. We have Gift of Grace cards for ministries supported by Eastern Shore Chapel: Chapel Pantry, Kairos, the Winter Shelter program, Holy Cross Anglican School in Belize, Mission of the Holy Spirit, Judeo-Christian Outreach Center, The Parish Book Store, and Dos Santos. While you are here, take a gingerbread boy or girl from our tree and purchase an age-appropriate book for a child at Mission of the Holy Spirit. We can also be your one-stop shop when you order your books from us! Come see what we have.
