Healing Conference • March 13-15

What a treat! Fr. Javier Loyo came by the Diocesan Center
today with fruit treats and a lovely message he presented to Bishop Reed and the staff:

“Bishop Reed, I have come today with the desire to express to you and the whole team my thanks for all the support you have given me during these 27 years that I have served this beautiful
church family, and for your continued support for me and my wife.
“I want this gift to be a motivation for you to continue giving that good face to all our brother priests and our communities.
“And for you, Bishop, take this humble gift to your beautiful family; may they continue being the support of your life in the service of God and of this beautiful Diocese.”

St. Luke, Mineral Wells

One young member (pictured center, with her mother) was
confirmed during Bishop Reed’s visit on the Last Sunday
in Epiphany at St. Luke’s Church in Mineral Wells.
Earlier in the morning, the Bishop visited St. Peter’s,
Possum Kingdom. Fr. Kendall Felton (not pictured) is
vicar of both congregations.

Thank you, Lollie Twyman

During a visit on Monday, Feb. 24, Bishop Reed presented
Lollie Twyman with a certificate of appreciation for her 20
years as leader of the World Mission Committee, helping
to build our relationships with the Diocese of Northern
Malawi and the La Gran Familia children’s homes in
Mexico. Seen on the table in front of them is a Noah’s
Ark carved in Malawi.
