Council in Action

Council in Action (CIA) is an opportunity for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas and Council participants to serve the community where Council takes place. In 2020, Council In Action will collect supplies for Corpus Christi Metro Ministries, a non-profit organization serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Corpus Christi and the surrounding Nueces County. Click here to open a flyer with more information and a list of items to donate.

Corpus Christi Metro Ministries helps create a community that is free from hunger and homelessness by Feeding (the mind, body, and spirit), Sheltering, and Transforming Lives. For more information about Corpus Christi Metro Ministries’ programs, visit their website at or follow their social media profile at
