“We are proud to be a partner with The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Dolores Park Works to clean up Dolores Park in the spirit of Easter celebration,” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager. “We are here to remind Dolores Park users: Love Thy Neighbor and Thy Park!” An Easter weekend celebration of Dolores Park sponsored by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Dolores Park Works, SF Rec and Park crew together with volunteers will be beautifying and cleaning the park by picking up trash and removing graffitis. The event will start with The Sisters leading the clean-up and then break for games with refreshment provided by Dolores Park Café, Bi-Rite Market, Delfina, Ike’s, and Namu Gaji. Robert Brust, Dolores Park Work steering committee chair is urging, “the Park’s many fans to come on out for an afternoon of fun, games and treats. While also, promoting a sense of pride, ownership, and responsibility for Dolores Park.” Dolores Park Works is a nonprofit volunteer organization that celebrates our park by improving and preserving Dolores Park’s beauty.
In addition, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since their first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted themselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment.
