Bishop Marc to preside at beach cleanup Eucharist with Holy Hikes and SF Baykeeper

Saturday, March 25, 2017, 9:45 am

Each month, Holy Hikes leads a Eucharistic hike through one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s green spaces. These draw a diverse demographic from young children to seniors. On Saturday, March 25th, Holy Hikes will be partnering with San Francisco Baykeeper and woven into the Eucharistic will be a clean-up of the East Creek Slough, one of Oakland's "trash hotspots." Bishop Marc Andrus will preside over the service. The structure of this event will be roughly as follows:

10 a.m. Gathering with Opening Prayers
10:15 Introduction/Supplies & Readings from Scripture
10:30 Walk and Bay clean up
11:30 Pause Clean up for 15 minutes to have Prayers of the People and Peace
11:45 Continue walk and clean up
12:45 Liturgy of the Table with light snacks to follow

Please RSVP if you are able to if you plan to join us for this beach cleanup. They will meet at the North Parking Lot of the Coliseum Public Market. You can use the entrance just north of the main Coliseum Public Market entrance, or you can use the main entrance itself (which is at 5401 Coliseum Way) and when you go in, turn right and go to the northward far parking lot by the fence. Look for Baykeeper and Holy Hikes banners.
