Diocesan Office Closes After City's "Stay Home" Order

[March 24, 2020] Monday evening the City of San Antonio and Bexar County issued a "Stay Home, Work Safe Order," restricting normal travel, work, and other activities in an effort to slow community spread of COVID-19. The order takes effect at midnight tonight, Tuesday, March 24 and will be in effect at least until April 9. Click here to read the entire order.

In response to this order, the Bishop Jones Center will close, effective Tuesday afternoon. A small number of staff members will work in the office from time to time to maintain the necessary business functions of the Diocese. All other diocesan staff members, including at Camp Capers and Mustang Island Conference Center, will work from home. Camp staff may work on site as needed, observing increased hygiene measures, as circumstances and local authorities allow.

The Rt. Rev. David Reed shares, "Though the diocesan staff won’t be at the Bishop Jones Center, we will be hard at work continuing to support the people and churches of West Texas. We will do our best to stay connected, stay engaged, and work with hope toward the day when we can begin moving back toward normal. Please don’t hesitate to contact the diocesan staff for church and ministry support during this time.

You and your families are in my prayers. May the Lord bless and keep you; I am looking forward to when we can be together again, in person, and I pray it will be soon."

The diocesan Staff Directory is available online, at, and diocesan communications and resources will continue to be published on the COVID-19 Resources page, at
