Election of a Bishop Suffragan

An election of a Bishop Suffragan will be held during the 113th Diocesan Council on Saturday, February 25, 2017, in Corpus Christi. The Standing Committee has developed a Diocesan Profile for the discernment of a bishop suffragan, as well as a timeline of the process leading up to the election.


Military Ministry

As one of Bishop Reed's new initiatives, a Military Ministry is being formed throughout the diocese. A Military Ministry Toolkit is available, full of resources for every congregation, as well as a list of Military Ministry Contact Persons.


Sharing Closet

The diocesan Altar Guild has created a "Sharing Closet" at the Bishop Jones Center in San Antonio, which contains items such as vestments, kneelers, Paschal candles, linens, crosses, hymnals, and prayer books for any congregation in need of such materials.


Recognizing the women of today.

The Commission for Women's Ministries (C4WM) invites each church in the diocese to choose an honored woman (or women) within your congregation to be honored at Camp Capers during the Fall Women's Gathering in October 2017. Nominations are due by April 2017.



Cursillo weekends (3-day retreats) give church members the tools and "rules of life" to enthusiastically share the joys of knowing Christ with others in their everyday environments. Participants engage in study, reflection, fellowship, and worship.
