We believe in putting our faith into action. Like the proverbial Good Samaritan in the Bible, we cannot just walk by those who are suffering, but do what we can to provide immediate relief and to bring about God's peace and justice in the world. We have ongoing efforts which are listed below, and we often have calls for volunteer support when there are extraordinary needs, such as when we collected and sorted donations for asylum seekers passing through San Diego.
Here are just a few of our offerings. If you are interested in helping, please email
JUST ACTION group
Good Samaritan is a member church of the San Diego Organizing Project, the local Faith in Action affiliate that seeks to improve the lives of our neighbors through advocacy, public policy changes, voter registration initiatives, forums with government bodies and local candidates, and more. Our Just Action group is focused on three initiatives this year: affordable housing and housing justice; climate change/creation care; and racial justice.
San Diego pride parade
In July of each year Good Samaritan coordinates a group to attend the San Diego Pride Parade, often joining up with other churches from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego.
