REQUESTING HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE FOR FAMILIES SEEKING ASYLUM
The Rt. Rev. David M. Reed, Bishop of West Texas, writes to the Diocese with a call to serve individuals and families seeking asylum. Bishop Reed shares, "The most immediate and urgent needs are for volunteers, as the pandemic allows; for food and other basic necessities; and for temporary housing. ...We can, by grace, offer Easter light to people who have traveled a long way in darkness. I encourage you and your congregation to consider how you might bring the light of Christ to our asylum-seeking brothers and sisters during these Great Fifty Days of Easter."
