Episcopal Church Center
Founded in 1922, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church has been a place where the doors stood open to offer peace and sanctuary to those in need. The Episcopal Church Center continues this legacy, and is becoming a place of gathering, learning, sharing and serving for all.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist with our many programs for homeless people or others in need. We have opportunities ranging from cooking and cleaning to answering phones, clerical work and welcoming people to the property. Please contact Facilities Manager Jeff Green for more information: email@example.com, 619-857-9577.

AA GROUP MEETINGS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK
SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS - HAVE BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK
The diocesan mobile shower units are now operating as the Showers of Blessings, and are serving those in need by meeting one of life's most basic human dignities--cleanliness. This seemingly simple act has the ability to impact lives in incredible way. The opportunity to maintain personal hygiene can reduce health problems, raise self-esteem and increase employment potential and social acceptance. Many men, women, and children in San Diego who are homeless go without access to a shower or clean clothes for weeks or months at a time.
The Showers of Blessing (sponsored by All Souls', Point Loma) is held on the fourth Saturday of every month at the Episcopal Church Center. Volunteers from All Souls' as well as other parishes are hosting the showers which include clean clothes, socks, toiletries, fresh towels and a friendly smile. On an average, we are able to offer showers to 32 people the fourth Saturday of every month.
In addition, the showers are requested for 10-14 days at other parishes around the Diocese during that parish's Interfaith Rotational Shelter Ministry. Of course, when at the shelters, there are no showers at the ECC.
For a complete schedule of shower locations, dates and times please follow this link:
Volunteers make it all happen!
Are you interested in having the showers come to your church for a function you have scheduled for people who are homeless? Is your Outreach Committee interested in contributing to this ministry or participating on a volunteer basis? Need help in organizing training and volunteers? Please contact the Rev. Phil Loveless.
We are always in need of donations; shampoo, conditioner, razors, combs, toothpaste, toothbrushes; clean clothing and shoes, (especially men's) socks, underwear. If you are able to make a donation, please contact the Rev. Phil Loveless.
We heartily welcome anyone interested in volunteering your time on Saturdays - we currently need people who can drive a pickup with a trailer attached, (or are willing to learn) and people to register guests and help out at the showers.
Contact Janet Sanford email@example.com to sign up to volunteer!

La Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico
We are in a companion relationship with the Anglican Church of Western Mexico. We entered into this partnership in 2015 because we share an international border with this diocese and we felt called to walk together more intentionally. We have since celebrated the United Thank Offering grant that allowed a medical clinic to be built and a truck for transportation in and out of the rural area where many very poor, indigenous people live. We are grateful for this friendship that has brought us so much life, and learning.
