On Monday, Oct. 23, at Tarry House, we commemorated our 175th anniversary, honored our community partners, and celebrated the invaluable work they do on behalf of so many.
St. David’s Episcopal Church has, from its earliest days, sought to bring the love of God to the city of Austin. In our 175 years, St. David’s church leadership, parishioners, and ministries have helped shape our city through our contributions of time, talent, and resources. As faithful witnesses of Christ, we have been, and continue to be, a church that is deeply committed to serving the most vulnerable among us.
This commitment has allowed us to create historic community partnerships that have launched a hospital and clinic, helped establish life-changing nonprofit organizations, raised millions of dollars in charitable donations, created much-needed ministries, and nourished the bodies and souls of tens of thousands of people in Central Texas and beyond.
