An interesting fact about Jefferson County is how closely interactive its many communities are. For this reason, an Episcopal parish in Jefferson County may have members driving from communities all over the county . . . and even outside the county. By Houston, Dallas and San Antonio standards, our distances are not great at all. A half a mile west from Holy Trinity one crosses railroad tracks on an overpass on TX 365. At the top of this overpass, one's left front tire is in Port Arthur, one's right front tire is in Nederland and the two rear tires are in Port Neches. We are a tight knit group of individual communities working, shopping, playing and worshipping together.
The members from Holy Trinity come from Port Neches, Nederland, Groves, Port Arthur, Beaumont, Hamshire, Fannett, LaBelle, Orange, Orangefield, Vidor and Lumberton. It's kind of neat to think about, but it does mean that our ministry geography is very large indeed!
