Local Churches

Your first year is an opportunity to "church shop."

Once Field Education begins for M.Div. students (most often in the second year), seminarians are usually expected to be with that congregation on Sunday. We encourage you to sample all the different churches and rich liturgical experiences in the area. If you have a family, this allows time to find a welcoming place, regardless of where Field Ed takes the seminarian (Some families go with their student, other families stay with a different congregation for their entire CDSP experience.)

The following is a list of some of the Episcopal Churches in the local area. While CDSP is firmly nestled in the geography of the Diocese of California, we are also in proximity to the Diocese of Northern California, the Diocese of El Camino Real and the Diocese of San Joaquin. Each website includes a Congregation Directory and links.
