The mission of Saints
Matthew and Mark Episcopal Church is to be a welcoming
community that gathers for faithful worship; nurtures,
loves, and supports our families; and reaches out to the
needs of the surrounding community In fulfilling this
mission: We worship and glorify God through our Lord Jesus
Christ and encourage an environment of love and service for
the Parish community and its neighbors.
We provide programs of Christian education and spiritual
formation for all our members of every age
All of our hearts are breaking at the news we are hearing from Oklahoma
and the midwest after Monday's outbreak of Tornadoes and severe weather.
Yet even in the midst of the ruin and destruction we see the lights of
acts of courage and kindness; teachers using their bodies to protect
their students, neighbors rushing out into the storm to rescue others,
first responders leaving behind their own tragic losses to save the
lives of others. In the midst of the fury of the storm, let us pray that
God will grant us grace to keep our hearts fixed on the light so that by
its inspiration and reflection we can be beacons of hope to many who
need us now.
I ask your prayers for all in the region who are suffering, who have
lost homes or businesses, who's hearts are broken by the lost of a loved
one. I ask you to consider how we can work together to help restore what
we can and comfort those who's losses we can not. Below is an email from
the canon to the Ordinary of the Diocese of Oklahoma with some details,
should your parish decide to aid in the recovery.

link was sent from Trinity Church, Newport. I think it is terrific.
It came from the Lutherans and is right on.
