Episcopal Church Bishop tours area

From West Texas-

The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, was in Aransas County Wednesday, Feb. 28, along with Diocesan bishop for the Diocese of West Texas (DWTX), Rt. Rev. David Reed, and the Bishop Suffragan for DWTX, the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Brooke-Davidson. They were joined by a large delegation of clergy from the Diocese of West Texas, including those serving congregations in hurricane-affected areas, as well as staff members from the national Episcopal Church offices in New York City.

The delegation was on a bus tour, coordinated by the Bishop’s Deputy for Disaster Recovery for the DWTX, visiting the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey, as well as spreading a message of hope and family.

The DWTX is providing assistance to 15 counties, including Aransas, affected by the storm. It includes 86 congregations spread across 60 counties in Central and South Texas. Its offices are in San Antonio.
