The Rev. Tracie Middleton has provided an update on tornado relief in our diocese:
Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) is working through the diocese to identify and respond to needs in the impacted Texas communities, including making plans for long-term recovery. You can contribute to these efforts by donating through our diocese or through Episcopal Relief and Development. ERD has published information about their 2013 tornado responses in Texas and Oklahoma; you can read it here.
