Annual Parish Meeting

Gary Hill - Interim Rector


Loaves & FishesOur food distribution arm has received supporting grants from the Diocese of Dallas Foundation for the years 2011 - 2019. We are grateful to the Foundation for it's support.

On the third Wednesday of each month since 2012 Loaves and Fishes opens their doors to serve from 70-100 families.  The baskets include not only food from the East Texas Food Bank but also food from the local St. Wm. Laud parish. Food drives have been held which resulted in donations of oil, flour, canned good, sugar, cake mixes, and other items hard to find at the Food Bank. Pictured below is the line that begins forming well before the doors open. Upper right shows the food bags ready for distribution and right a close up of one of the bags. Thanks to all who donate food and money for this outreach program.













Parish Cookbook

 The parish cookbook, Second Helpings is still available. It's a fully indexed, 293 page, hardback, spiral bound church cookbook filled with recipes from our parish's best cooks. It's a great gift for the people you know who love to cook. At $5.00 a copy it's a steal. So take care of a bunch of the family Christmas shopping right now and save time and money. Call the parish at (903) 856-2675 and place your order today.
