Our prison ministry, REC (Residents Encounter Christ), takes the love of Christ to the inmates of East Texas' prisons who often think that no one loves them; why should God? It's an ecumenical ministry that involves churches of many denominations from all over East Texas. It very successful and a proven ministry to combat recidivism in Texas prisons. If you would like to participate, contact any of our REC team members.

Currently they are  doing a study of “The Apocriphal Jesus” , a study of Jesus as presented in Apocryphal writings in New Testament times.

Many in the parish also minister to the parish by serving as acolytes, readers, servers, oblationers, vestry members, ushers, treasurers and altar guild.


There are many parishioners who volunteer in many ways to serve the community. Some serve as hospice caregivers, some volunteer at the local hospital in many different capacities. We have even started a bookmobile service there hosted by members of the  parish.
