We understand that many in our parish family need help meeting their basic needs due to power outages and water shortages. In moments like these, we remember how interdependent we all are. We depend on the help and support of others. Should you find yourself in a difficult situation and have a specific need (firewood, food, transportation), please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will do my best to help.
I encourage you to check in with those in your Shepherd Circle as well as with those around you. Now more than ever, our Shepherd Circles can serve as points of connection as we navigate this disaster.
We chose our theme for Lent weeks ago: "On your mark, get set, GO." The GO refers to going out and helping others after our prolonged time in a pandemic-induced quarantine and period of self-reflection. This series of winter storms offers us an opportunity to help others and GO. Please consider what you can do if you are in a position to help.
If you’re able, please fill up water bottles and make sure you have an adequate supply of water. Please help to conserve water and look for news of boiled water notices - including the boil water notice currently in effect for Austin.You can find more about Austin's water here.
