Jul 17: Social Justice Update

I wanted to provide everyone with some basic information in regards to shelters and further events to come.

As of recently we have focused our efforts towards helping the Inn2. Currently ICE is not making many releases so we will continue our efforts once they begin to release more asylum seekers. The Inn2’s next orientation will be held on July 25 from 1-3 p.m. This will be held at St. Francis in the foothills church office. As far as donations go, we will be putting a hold on making any, as a group, until the Inn2 is up and running again. It will stay closed until the Inn has more guests.

There will also be a table set up Sunday July 21 to hand out more info for the shelter. Diane Everhart, will be speaking at our congregation and will be at this set up as well. She runs the Inn2 shelter.

As I’m sure many of you heard the monastery will be closing end of July and casa alitas will be moving to the juvenile detention facility here in Tucson. You can email Juanita at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information in regards on how to volunteer and donate.

We are still in need of someone to speak for a few minutes during our social minute about donating backpacks for asylum seeking travelers. On August 4th, we will be doing a "Blessing of the Backpacks" as part of worship to send off for back to school. We would like to encourage folks to bring backpacks for St. Francis to worship that day, so we can extend our blessing to the migrants who will be traveling to meet their sponsors. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further questions in regards to that matter or if you’re interested in speaking. Thanks!
