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, […]

  In times of stress and trial, it is tempting to allow our instinct for survival to kick in. Do I have enough food? Do I have enough supplies? Will I have enough resources to last until…?   Of course, our instinct to survive is a natural response and can be helpful in times like […]

  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.

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 […]

The gift of education is the best thing to give refugees on the path to becoming self-sufficient, productive citizens. Volunteers who connect with a child or adult can literally change a life. We are grateful for our volunteers like Donmienne, herself a newcomer from Hong Kong, who dedicated hours of her time to help Paw, […]

Fifteen young members of our diocese with the children of a rural Guatemalan village called Ixtacapa (eesh-ta-ca-pa). This June, our youth spent a week building two houses of cinderblock and stucco. They dug trenches, mixed concrete, heaved an enormous boulder out of a stream, applied stucco, and poured a concrete floor. They also made memories […]
