Below is but a snapshot of ways that St. David’s Episcopal Church engages beyond our walls with a variety of volunteer opportunities. If you have additional questions after reading any section, you can contact .
Pray for the Spirit of the City
Every day, we pray for Greater Austin —
For the more than 2.3 million people living in this historic capital city of Texas, including the jurisdictions of Round Rock and San Marcos, and the surrounding counties and towns.
Please join us in this common prayer. We believe that God desires for us to pray together and to pray specifically for the Reign of God to come here as it is in heaven.
- Hands for Hope Fundraiser
El Buen Samaritano Episcopal Mission is hosting its 31st annual Hands for Hope initiative with the goal to provide holiday meal kits to 2,300 families over two distribution days in November and December 2021. Hands for Hope is a wonderful way for the Episcopal community to come together to raise awareness about hunger in Central Texas. Funds also support El Buen’s year-round emergency food pantry.
Our parish is participating in a fundraising campaign to raise money for turkeys and pies. Click here to be a part of this initiative.
El Buen also needs volunteers for Hands for Hope! Volunteers will help distribute meal kits on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 20, please go online to reserve your spot.
