St. George's, Texas City Spreads Seeds of Hope to Galveston County Residents

(R to L): The Rev. Robin Reeves, St. George’s, Texas City, Susan Dunn, Hope Festival Organizer
and Byron Hambrick, member of St. George’s pick fresh hope and take a break to play


Visitors to the Hope Festival at St. George’s Episcopal Church  at 6th Street and 13th Avenue may enjoy a day of Rest & Play while connecting with resource assistance. As St. George's Walks in the Way of Love this year's theme, they are scattering seeds of Hope and providing a place for connection and play to Galveston County. 

Much of Galveston County has been traumatized first by Hurricane Harvey and then by the shootings in Santa Fe. The nature of trauma causes many to isolate and then lose hope. The Hope Festival is an opportunity for people to Choose Hope Anew, to  connect with others in the community and to valuable resources.

It is also an opportunity to reboot with a day of play. That is what happened for one 10 year-old-girl last year from Dickinson who was severely depressed after losing everything in Hurricane Harvey. After pony and train rides, getting her face painted and drumming on Jamba drums, eating free hot dogs and ice cream, she was back to herself again. She found hope in realizing Harvey didn't win and she could laugh and play again. She discovered she can have joy even in the midst of recovery. 

We invite you to come and pick some fresh Hope! Enjoy Holiday shopping and great foods, Food Trucks, Free Chair Massages, arts and crafts all set to a backdrop of Love songs to soothe your soul.
