We Three Kings …

As part St. Paul’s Cathedral and Episcopal Diocese tradition for over 5 years, the Three Kings visited the foster children, staff and neighbors of Dorcas House on Sunday, January 6th.

The Three Kings processed during the 10:30 am service on January 6th and were given a blessing by Rev. Canon Joan Butler Ford. Immediately afterwards along with other members of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego – Good Samaritan, Christ Church Coronado, St Bart's, and St Peter's, they traveled to Dorcas House in Tijuana, Mexico.

Upon everyone’s arrival, time was spent with the children, staff and guests; lunch was shared with all and then the family groups received their gifts from the Three Kings. Photos were taken which serve as momentos for the families which they will cherish. This tradition of celebrating the Three Kings day is very much alive in many cultures as in Mexico. Those of us from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego are honored to share and participate with our friends at Dorcas House. For future trips to Dorcas House in 2013, watch for announcements on the St.Paul’s Cathedral or Dorcas House websites.
