Mission Trip to Honduras

Join Saint Michael and All Angels Honduras Mission leaders for an evening of song, prayer, and information about the 2017 trip to Tela, Honduras. Everyone in the diocese is invited, not just members of SMAA. During the evening, information will be provided about the cost for each missioner going to Honduras, the projects the missioners will be doing while in Tela, and the requirements for going on the trip.

The mission trip to Tela, Honduras is an adult-focused mission trip that usually takes place during the month of February.  Over the course of 7-8 days, parishioners travel to Honduras to work in partnership with the local parish and school.  In addition to working with the community in Tela, parishioners also work alongside four other communities in the surrounding area.  The bulk of the work completed by parishioners includes providing fluoride treatments for 500-600 children and construction projects that will assist the sustainability of the parish, the school, or the surrounding communities.

Honduras Mission Trip Information Meeting is scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m., Sept. 11, at Saint Michael and All Angels, Coke Activities Room, 8011 Douglas Ave., Dallas. 

RSVP for the Honduras Mission Trip Information Session.

Contact information The Rev. Hunter Ruffin at 214-363-5471.


Mission and Outreach: Gulf Coast Floods

Friends, Here is the bulletin insert from Episcopal Relief & Development on what we can do to help our brothers and sisters in the Gulf Coast area who have been affected by the horrendous flooding there.  We remember all too well what it is like to face a devastating disaster and Episcopal Relief & Development was there to help us as well.  Please urge your congregations to be generous.

Here is Episcopal Relief & Development's web statement about response efforts.

We have also put together worship bulletin inserts to help raise funds for disaster response. Would you please forward them to your networks or print them to use in your congregations?
