Welcome to the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Northwest Texas --a place where the vast open plains are as wondrous as the big sky above! As depicted in the pectoral cross of Bishop J. Scott Mayer, the stars, moon, and sun are representative of the beauty one may find in this region of Texas. The landscape, covering 77,000 square miles is as diverse as the cities and people, with the canyons and rangelands of the Staked Plains; agricultural fields abounding; and the rough and ready country of the Rolling Plains. The people here are known for their warm and friendly smiles, making one feel like an old and trusted friend.
The Rt. Rev. Gary Lillibridge, Bishop of the Diocese of West Texas, has issued an urgent appeal for emergency assistance for cities and parishes in the Diocese of West Texas who were affected by the recent flooding, specifically Wimberley, TX, and Acuna, Mexico, located across the border from Del Rio.
