Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia! When can we reopen our churches? It’s the question at the top of most of our minds. I don’t know the answer yet, but I will be watching guidance that comes out from governmental authorities to determine the best time to begin a phased reopening, […]

We need multiple participants during worship. We rely on lectors, intercessors, preachers, celebrants, and many more for a Sunday service to go ‘just right.’  During our current season of prevention, many of us are streaming services, some even twice a day, and our congregations have grown into global communities using Facebook Live, YouTube, Instagram Live, […]

  My friends in the Diocese of San Diego, These are frightening times. The State of California is now under a mandatory stay-at-home order from the governor.

My Friends in the Diocese of San Diego, As you know, we are facing an unprecedented health crisis in our world because of the new coronavirus.

As the concern about the COVID-19 outbreak spreads, and as we begin to suspect that there are many more cases in our communities than are yet known, I would like our churches to update their preparations for this disease. Although, for most people, the illness poses a low risk, for the elderly, vulnerable, and immunocompromised […]

This past Saturday night, February 29th, 43 youth from 12 congregations in our diocese gathered at St. Paul’s Cathedral for Nightwatch–an annual event that takes place during Lent. This year’s theme was Leap of Faith!  The evening began with a few hours of crazy fun, which included an inflatable Velcro wall in the middle of […]

Dear Friends, As reports of coronavirus increase in the United States and elsewhere, we in the Diocese of San Diego should consider how our faith communities should respond. It is difficult to say now whether the new virus will have a significant impact here. However, it is certainly a good time for us to review […]

Our calendar of saints remembers Leo the Great today, even though I don’t think there’s a single Episcopal church named for him. He lived from about 400 to 461, at a time when the Roman Empire was falling apart. He was well-educated and was ordained a deacon to serve as a financial administrator and ensure […]

Good afternoon, fearless love diocese! This diocese may be headquartered in San Diego, yet we include communities from as far north as Lake Elsinore, Menifee, and Hemet, east to Indio, Brawley, and Yuma, and south to the border. In earlier days, this might have been called the southmost diocese in upper California. How we name […]
