Mutual Ministry Along the Border

By: Chris Tumilty, EDSD Director of Communications

Bishop Susan Brown Snook joined the Bishop of Western Mexico, The Rt. Rev. Ricardo Joel Gómez Osnaya; the Bishop of Southeastern Mexico, The Rt. Rev. Julio C. Martin; the Bishop of Guatemala, The Rt. Rev. Silvestre Romero; and delegations from San Diego and Los Angeles in Tijuana to discuss mutual ministry and cooperation across the border. The group later lunched with members of Via International and visited the Vida Joven orphanage, supported by multiple churches in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego. 

Bishop Susan Brown Snook said, “It was a joy to meet with my companion bishops from south of the border and talk about cooperating in ministry together. The work of Via International in helping women start small businesses through micro-credit was inspiring and hopeful. And my heart was truly touched by the children of Vida Joven. Children who were formerly abused, abandoned, or orphaned are loved, cared for, and protected there, so they can grow up knowing that they are safe. I saw the hand of God everywhere I looked.” Read More

Godly Play Training Retreat

In partnership with Christ Church Coronado, the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego is pleased to offer a Godly Play Core Training Retreat on August 19-21.



Take the mystery out of planned giving for your parish. Learn in easy-to-understand terms how planned giving differs from annual stewardship and capital campaigns, and how your parish can build endowments through estate allocations, life income, and other gifts. After a review of the planned giving instruments, you will learn about the importance of a parish vision, protecting and growing your endowment, and how to invite others to remember your parish through estate and financial planning. You will leave the workshop with a plan of action. Read More
