Buried Treasure?

When a fire suppression system (sprinklers) activates, the Fire Department can hook up a pumper to increase the water pressure above that supplied by the Marin Municipal Water District main. To ensure none of this water gets back into the water main there is a backflow arrester (check valve) between the main and the pumper. Until recently the check valves were usually located in a box under the sidewalk. New codes make it necessary to raise these check valves above ground for easier regular inspection and recertification. That’s what all the digging has been about recently. We didn’t find any treasure!

This particular check valve is part of the Redeemer Preschool fire suppression system.It will be repositioned behind the church sign. We also have to make some minor piping modifications inside the school building. All the work should be complete by the end of July in time for the pupils to return when the school vacation finishes in early August.


Welcome From the Congregation

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer is a caring community offering opportunities for spiritual growth by knowing, loving, and serving God through one another.

Our vision is to share our belief in God and God's love in Episcopal worship. We welcome all people of the community to join our mutually supportive, loving congregation. We envision a cohesive, vital church community, wise stewardship, and a spiritually enriching place of worship. This vision encompasses our own growth and renewal, individually, as families, and as a congregation through serving each other and the community.

At Redeemer, we honor everyone in our tradition of “whoever you are and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.”



The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in San Rafael invites you to experience engaging worship in a supportive and caring environment.
