Members of St. Augustine’s have ministered to The Harbor, a home for approximately 100 mentally impaired adults, for more than a decade. Deacon Robby Trammell and others from St. Augustine’s assist with a 1:00 p.m. prayer and praise service on the first Sunday of each month. The service includes Holy Communion from the reserve sacrament as well as anointing and prayers for healing. The service is frequently followed by a fellowship/snack time. St. Augustine’s members also support the residents of The Harbor with contributions of various supplies such as shoes and socks, bedding and cash contributions for Christmas gifts, food and other necessities. The Brotherhood of St. Lawrence also organizes cookouts for the residents. The Harbor is located at 4100 Newport Avenue in Oklahoma City.
The mission of the Jesus House, and its faith-based programs, is “to transform lives impacted by mental illness, homelessness,and addiction by providing a place for wellness, recovery, spiritual growth, and a meaningful future.” St. Augustine’s ministers to the men and women seeking recovery at the Jesus House—located at 1335 West Sheridan in downtown Oklahoma City—by offering a worship service at 1:00 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month, often followed by a fellowship/snack time. A special service of foot washing on Maundy Thursday has also become an annual event. A number of other services are provided to the Jesus House in conjunction with other St. Augustine’s ministries, such as Thanksgiving food baskets provided through the Brotherhood of St. Lawrence, women’s personal items and toiletries provided each spring by the Episcopal Church Women (ECW), and periodic meals provided by the Brotherhood and served with parish-wide volunteers. St. Augustine’s also contributes financially to augment the donations and volunteer efforts of our members.
