Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church and San Marcos. Our river towns comprise a diverse community - we embrace this in all its forms as one of our strengths. Our worship is a joyful celebration of the truth that God loves us madly.
Our regular Sunday services are in English at 8 and 10 am and in Spanish at 12:30 pm. On special occasions we worship together in a festive "Spanglish" service. We are one community of faith that speaks two languages.
We celebrate the history and beauty of Washington Irving's home church. Founded in 1837, today Christ Church glows with the energy of a church family that strives to practice love for each other, our community, the nation and the world. We welcome you to join us for worship, classes, prayer, social events, and our other activities. Or just stop by to sit and reflect.
'What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?'
is the title now given to a speech by Frederick Douglass delivered on July 5, 1852, in Corinthian Hall, Rochester, New York, addressing the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society.
James Earl Jones reads the first half of the speech (4:48)
Life is short, and we do not have too much time to
gladden the hearts of those who travel with us,
so be quick to love and make haste to be kind.
Henri-Frederic Amiel 1868
