As you are aware, recent flooding in the area in and around Wimberly has left extensive damage, including loss of lives and homes. In addition, a recent tornado in the border city of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico - across from Del Rio - left many of the poorest of our brothers and sisters in total devastation. The Diocese of West Texas and churches in these areas are responding to these needs by coordinating relief efforts. Please see immediately below the letter from Bp. Lillibridge regarding this efforts. At this time, in order to streamline relief efforts, it is recommended that donations alone be offered. These may be sent to St. Andrew's with a note in the memo line, or may be sent directly to St. Stephen's Wimberly or the Diocesan office, at the addresses listed.
In February 2014, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Seguin, was selected to host the next Habitat build sponsored by the Diocese of West Texas. We are so thankful for this opportunity, and we are ready to GET BUILDING!
On Sunday, January 18th, we kicked off our 2015 Habitat project with glorious worship, a celebration lucheon, and the groundbreaking for the new home at 321 Mesquite St. in Seguin. We were joined by our guest speaker, the Rev. John Badders, Chair of the Habitat Task Force for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, as well as several members of the Board of Directors for Guadalupe Valley Habitat for Humanity. Our most special guests for the day were Mary Jane Tovar and her daughter, recipients of the latest Habitat build, and the Osvaldo & Alexandra Zarate and their children, recipients of our own build, which will be known as the "St. Andrew's House."
As of May 2015, the build continues, and in spite of a wet spring, the house is ahead of schedule! Thanks to everyone who has been involved in so many ways to make this dream a reality. Watch for news of the dedication and blessing of the St. Andrew's House coming in late June or early July!
On April 24, 2015, the Rt. Rev. Gary Lillibridge, Bishop of the Diocese of West Texas, issued a letter to the diocese regarding his decision to allow the provisional use of a liturgy for same-sex blessings in three congregations in our diocese. The text of the letter may be found under the "announcements" tab in the menu. Please give the document viewer a moment to load. The letter may also be downloaded and/or printed. Fr. Kevin is available by appointment for anyone in the parish who desires to discuss the topic, or the contents and implications of the letter.
