Ocean Beach News

Founded in 1922, the Episcopal Church Center opens its doors for all people to have a place to go for peace and sanctuary. A diverse community that focuses on living the message of Jesus Christ.

Homelessness in Ocean Beach and in San Diego in general is something that is real. The fact remains that many people live in the city without a real place to call home. It is a sad situation, and in one case an Episcopal bishop is trying to help. Bishop Jim Mathes will be washing the feet of homeless people in Ocean Beach. The event took place on April 5, 2012 at the Episcopal Church Center, 2083 Sunset Cliffs Blvd, San Diego, in the courtyard in an effort to raise awareness about homelessness and to let our homeless population know they are not invisible; they are loved.

The Episcopal Diocese led by the bishop regularly hosts events that benefit the community such as washing the feet of homeless people and putting new shoes and socks on them. The event was also a way to connect the homeless with legal, medical and social services to help with permanent change in their lives.

Jack,
Just a quick note to express to you my dissatisfaction with your church (which I attend) serving the homeless food as you do on Sunset Cliffs Avenue. I am a tax paying resident,with a family, and we do not appreciate looking at or dealing with the homeless who come to your church for a free meal. On more than one occasion we have had issue walking bye with our young son. We are also well aware of many many other residents of Ocean Beach that do not appreciate this. Why don't you deliver the food to shelters or take it downtown where there are not homeowners? I am not heartless but enough is enough!!! This is a neighborhood- not a homeless shelter. Its time that we clean up Ocean Beach and you are not helping.

Thank you,
Tyson Passey
