Every year our parishioners, loved ones and clergy join Episcopalians around Los Angeles to proclaim God’s love for all people at Pride events.
At LA Pride parades we've gathered to share the Eucharist, then marched with the Diocese of Los Angeles in the parade through West Hollywood. In recent years our team has been one the largest one in the diocese!
In Santa Monica we are part of Pride Month, with a booth at their festival on the 3rd Street Promenade and events at church that weekend.
St. Augustine's is a welcoming and affirming parish, and we joyfully celebrate same-sex marriages. Historically the parish has been at the forefront of LGBTQ+ activism: we held the first AIDS Mass in the nation in the 1985, and had one of the first openly-gay Episcopal priests, Malcolm Boyd, on staff.
