Welcome!

We’re Oasis California, the LGBT Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of California. covering the Bay Area in northern California, we can help you find an Episcopal Church where you will feel at home, meet other LGBT Episcopalians, and help our church minister to LGBT folks.  Please sign up here to receive our  e-newsletter, action alerts, and invitations to Oasis California events.

In San Francisco, we will most likely join United in Spirit is a volunteer-coordinated ecumenical group consisting of representatives of LGBTQ-affirming congregations, as well as supportive clergy and people of faith from throughout Northern California. This contingent has affirmed and celebrated LGBTQ people in San Francisco Pride for more than twenty-five years.

In Oakland, we will march as Oasis California in a group of people from East Bay Episcopal Churches.

For more on our plans please subscribe to our e-newsletter.

WHY MARCH?
You get to have fun at Pride, meet and spend time with some really interesting folks, and witness to God’s inclusive love while extending your congregation’s welcome to the LGBTQ community.

WHY NOT MARCH AS OASIS IN SF?

We simply don’t have enough people power to organize our own marching contingent this year. Nor do we have enough to offer a Pride Mass on the parade route this Sunday. Please let us know if you would like to help with 2017 Pride or any other effort Oasis might – with your help – make. Please contact Fr. Thomas C. Jackson at tcjackson@oasisca.org to be part of the planning process.
