This video shows snippets from our Maundy Thursday Foot Washing at the Episcopal Church Center in Ocean Beach, California. The event provided new socks and shoes for over 200 people in need. Also available were: foot washers, social workers, legal advisors, dental hygienists, veterinarians, hair stylists, and other social service agencies such as AA. Interfaith prayer services were held in the chapel, and people prayed for one another as feet were washed. A thurifer censed the courtyard where all the activity took place and Taize style guitar music filled the air. It was an interfaith effort to respond to human need through loving service led by the director of the Episcopal Church Center, Nancy Holland (the first person you see interviewed).
The Rt. Rev. James R. Mathes, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego was the first to wash feet.
