Year of Service: Veterans Day

Throughout 2023, churches across EDSD participated in the Year of Service. Hundreds of people were aided by programs focusing on creation care and migration. As a final diocesan-wide service project for the year, in honor of Veteran’s Day and alongside the business of Diocesan Convention, we are assembling care packages for Sailors soon to be deployed out of San Diego.

Our goal? 

Sharing the love of Christ by assembling 200 care packages for sailors soon to be deployed out of San Diego.

Why this initiative? 

Deployments often leave sailors longing for the comforts of home and missing loved ones. Our care packages, filled with essential items and personalized notes, aim to provide a touch of comfort and a clear message: We see you and we love you.

Where will this be?

During Diocesan Convention on Saturday, November 11 you will find the epicenter of our military ministry service project in the Cathedral’s new Guild Room.

How can I help?

We invite attendees to be a part of the package assembly process. Engage in conversations, write personal notes of gratitude, and experience firsthand the joy of collective giving. You can also donate to this effort by clicking here. Donations will assist us in purchasing materials for care packages.

As we prepare for the 50th Diocesan Convention, we’re not just celebrating a milestone of faith but reinforcing the tenets of service and gratitude that underpin it. By coming together for our active duty, military families, and veterans, we’re extending our community’s warmth. We urge every attendee to join us for this project on Veterans Day.
