San Francisco City Pilgrimage

San Francisco City Pilgrimage takes the Pilgrimage experience on the road! If you have done LA City Pilgrimage or other trips like this, then SFCP takes the experience one step further as we venture to the Bay Area.

SFCP will take us on an urban immersion experience in a completely different context, with different social issues, cultures and communities to engage in.

Trip for incoming High School Freshmen - Incoming Seniors

LA City Pilgrimage is a week-long urban immersion program for high school students within the Diocese of Los Angeles. It is a week of service in and around LA, but it is also a week of looking for God where God can be found. This experience encourages students to question who their neighbor is and how to make their neighbor the subject of engagement and community rather than the object of pity.

Called to the Wall

Via Crucis to the Border will highlight plight of immigrants

Members of the Episcopal Dioceses of Los Angeles and San Diego, including Bishop John Taylor, will draw attention to the plight of immigrants as they travel the way of the cross. There will also be a worship service from the Mexican side of the border.

All are welcome to join in at any of the stops.

At the border we will bear witness to the plight of those affected by immigration by celebrating the Eucharist, remembering that Jesus was an immigrant. Please be sure to bring your own water. It is a bit of a walk to the wall from the Friendship Park parking lot; please do be prepared for the pilgrimage.

Diocesan Convention

The Diocese holds an annual Convention where clergy and lay delegates from all the churches in the Diocese come together to make decisions. These decisions cover budgetary concerns, governing issues, and resolutions regarding current events or church-related issues. Decisions are made by vote after discussion and debate. Special Conventions are held as determined by the Diocese for specific reasons, budgetary matters, election of a new Bishop, or other issues that are not resolved by the annual Convention. In 1998, a change to the Diocesan Canons was passed allowing young people aged 16 and over to be qualified electors. Also, there are ten seats for one young person from each Deanery on the floor of Convention. In 2014, the Diocesan Constitution was amended to allow these young people have seat, voice, and vote,” so your opinion can be heard and declared. In any case, as a volunteer, a Deanery representative, or an elected lay delegate from one of our churches, the tasks for which you are responsible are important to the total ministry of the Diocese.
