Cursillo #272 May 12-15 at Mustang Island Conference Center.
Currently there are 14 candidates, but there is still space for more. The team and location can accommodate at least 6 to 8 others. If anyone in your church is moved by the Spirit and interested in attending, please do not let finances become a barrier. Contact Denise Powers at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about scholarship assistance. Blessings, Laura Shaver, Communications Officer, Episcopal Diocese of West Texas
Sunday, May 8th - Mother's Day
Join us Mother's Day Sunday as we continue the theme of Love. We will be honoring Mothers. And as part of that we will be raising money for various Diocesan outreach grants to women and children's ministries. Last year the Missions Department made grants of more than $8,000 to help fund a teacher in very rural Southeast Mexico, school fees for Children in Nebbi, Uganda, and back to school supplies and support to other Ugandan Children, and helping to publish a Christian Children's magazine distributed in Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia.
Nursery Workers Needed!
We hope to hire new Nursery workers. If you or someone you know is interested in 2 hours of work on Sunday mornings have them contact Fr. Paul at the church office 956-723-5714
Sound System Stress!
Our church sound system is past aging. It is coming apart. Rich Gillard, our Junior Warden on the board (Vestry), informs me we really need to replace it. In the meantime, if you had a band, or have a friend who had a band, and you are no longer using a portable sound system with an amp, speakers, and sound board, we would love to borrow, or possibly purchase it. Contact the parish office.
Honor our Graduates
We will be praying for graduates, both those present and those absent, each Sunday in May during our services.
Sunday, May 15th - Pentecost
Celebrate Pentecost Sunday as we again focus on Love. How can God's Love fill us and empower us, and change us.
