CAMINAR EN LA LUZ – Walk in the Light

August 2 - 8, 2024

High School Youth Summer Trip 2024 

This Summer youth from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego will travel to the Community of Light in Tijuana. They will meet youth from the Anglican Diocese of Western Mexico. The Community of Light is a partnership between the two dioceses and will be a shelter for women and children building a life in Tijuana after being unable to cross into the United States of America. Youth on this trip will build relationships with the youth from Western Mexico, learn about the culture in Mexico, work on service projects for the shelter, and deepen their faith through learning, serving, and worship.

Applications are open through June 10, 2024. There are 15 spots for this year’s trip. The cost of the trip is $500. If a student is selected for the delegation, they will secure their spot by making a $50 deposit. We will fundraise in community to make the trip possible for every student who wants to go. Students who participate in the fundraisers are eligible for a share of the funds raised. Any balance remaining as of July 20, 2024, is the responsibility of the student.

There are 15 total spots available for this trip. The application is open through June 10, 2024. LINK TO APPLY

Sunday Sermon

Sunday, June 2

Treasure Within

St. Paul refers to us as clay jars with treasure within. This is one of Rev. Dr. Mark Hargreaves’ favorite passages on which to preach. He offers that “Our woundedness, our flaws, are part of our uniqueness and can be put to use for God's glory…Don't get caught up with the outside, the surface of life. You're a clay jar…treasure the treasure within.”

Watch or read the sermon HERE.
