Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Greetings and happy new year!  I pray that your December was filled with hope, peace, joy and love.
There are a lot of questions about the COVID-19 vaccines that are becoming more broadly available. Our friends at Houston Methodist Hospital have offered to provide a Virtual Town Hall meeting in English on January 20 and in Spanish on January 21. Please register to participate in one of these events, submit a question that you would like to have addressed, and get the word out to those you serve. 
We want as many people as possible to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity. Toward that end, we believe encouraging our people and sharing information are the best ways to help our community and love our neighbors. Please encourage as much participation as possible.

Grace and peace,

Bishop Scott J. Jones
