In 1848, fewer than a thousand people lived in Austin, the newly established capital of Texas. Our parish was also being formed. Throughout 2023, we will celebrate the 175th anniversary as the First Episcopal Church in Austin.
We are thankful for the work of generations before us at St. David’s, and the inspiration they provide to continue the good work God has started at our parish.
We are also excited for a year-long celebration with events to gather joyfully as a church community, to reflect more deeply into our parish history, to reflect on our 175 years in the heart of Austin as a partner in the community.
Throughout this banner year we hope you’ll join us in celebrating these connections. Visit our 175th anniversary webpage often as we’ll update event information and photos throughout the year.
