St. Simon’s on the Sound

The Border Zone Team partners with Team Brownsville in Brownsville, TX to support a feeding and service ministry to the now over 2500 asylum seekers on the Mexican side of the Brownsville/Matamoros Bridge. Quarterly a team of approximately 15 individuals who represent parishes throughout the diocese travel to Brownsville where they engage in meal preparation and distribution; children’s activities; and the provision of much needed supplies ranging from diapers, clothing, blankets and personal hygiene products to Spanish version New Testaments and related items. The diocese, most especially the Border Zone Team members, view this work as a critical humanitarian ministry – one that responds to our call from Christ to go into the world to heal; to reconcile; and to bring God’s peace.

How Can You Help?

At the moment we need prayer that the word of this important work will touch as many of our diocesan members as possible. This will be the first step in creating an environment in which we can welcome newcomers.
