Hi! It’s been a while. My apologies for the lag. We are back, carefully, to in person worship. It has been wonderful! We all continue to pray for each other, our Country, and our World. I/we pray not only for healing from this pandemic, but for peace, Special prayers for those suffering from COVID-19 and other illnesses or needs. Most importantly, for our Canon Missioner, Rev. Gina. We miss you. Blessings as she continues to recover.
From Rev. Bonnie Reeves. It is the back to school service that the Lavaca county ministerial alliance puts on each year. This year it was a virtual service. Back to School Service of Blessing
Yeee – haaa! Our PIM churches, being compliant with Diocesan directives, will be able to restart in person worship next Sunday, 6 Sept. Our Clergy will begin their regular rotation, with the exception of our Canon Missioner. Rev. Gina continues to recover. As a result of this, St. Matthew’s will have Morning Prayer. All others will have a Priest. It will be outstanding to be together once more!
From The Bishop. Next right step
2020_PIM_Retreat Looking forward to it!
The Long Haul in Our Community Lives Thank you, Rev. Gina for these words.
Sadly, as COVID-19 cases rise, we will not hold public worship thru the month of August, 2020. Please, check back regularly for updates. Have a blessed day.

As you are aware, the Texas and National spikes in the COVID-19 virus are significant. As a result, out of caution, our PIM churches will not have services this Sunday (5 July). I would expect this may continue for some time. I would encourage us all to not only pray for each other, but to reach out with a call, text, e-mail, or in some other manner. It makes a difference. God bless.
