Saint William Laud's mission statement is "Witnessing for Christ around His table and in the world."  We do this in different ways.


Our prison ministry, REC (Residents Encounter Christ), takes the love of Christ to the inmates of East Texas' prisons who often think that no one loves them; why should God? It's an ecumenical ministry that involves churches of many denominations from all over East Texas. It very successful and a proven ministry to combat recidivism in Texas prisons. If you would like to participate, contact any of our REC team members. 


Our Episcopal Day School gives its students a Christian based pre-k education that prepares them to enter public school kindergarten. To get more information about the Day School program you must be registered as a member on this website. (You do not have to be a member of St. Wm. Laud.)


Loaves and Fishes is our food pantry that serves the people of Pittsburg and the surrounding area by distributing food to those in need. Most of our food comes from the East Texas Food Bank in Tyler but many items also come from donations of food and financial support.


Study Group - The Study Group meets each Monday evening at 6:00 P.M. We study various subjects which are pertinent to the Christian Faith. Currently they are  doing a study of “The Apocriphal Jesus” , a study of Jesus as presented in Apocryphal writings in New Testament times. This is a study as presented in 24 video lectures by Professor David Brakke of The Ohio State University 


Many in the parish also minister to the parish by serving as acolytes, readers, servers, oblationers, vestry members, ushers, treasurers and altar guild.


There are many parishioners who volunteer in many ways to serve the community. Some serve as hospice caregivers, some volunteer at the local hospital in many different capacities. We have even started a bookmobile service there hosted by members of the  parish.
