The Church Pension Fund (CPF), the sponsor and administrator of pension and other benefit plans for The Episcopal Church, announced the launch of A Message from the Chair, a quarterly communication that will be published after each regular meeting of the CPF Board of Trustees (CPF Board). Prepared by CPF Board Chair Bishop Thomas J. Brown, the communication will reflect actions taken by the CPF Board that impact the products and services administered by CPF, as well as other highlights of the meeting.

“We are excited to introduce this new communication that is designed to  help the Church better understand the work of the CPF Board,” said Bishop Brown. “Our inaugural message highlights a new product offering from The Episcopal Church Medical Trust, decisions related to the 2022 Medicare Supplement Subsidy, as well as our ongoing work with Diversity, Equity, and  Inclusion. We hope this communication provides additional clarity around our work and our efforts to support those who serve the Church.”
