Sanctuary Support Opportunities in January 2018

  • What’s happening on Immigration and Sanctuary Support fronts?   Join the Gloria Dei Sanctuary Support Team at Adult Forum on Sunday, January 21 for an update on Gloria Dei’s efforts to support immigrants in our community and to discuss the current status of immigration actions locally and nationally. Our featured speaker will be Kathy Moccio, attorney with the Center for New Americans at the University of Minnesota Law School. Kathy works with immigrants in detention and will discuss their needs and some ways Gloria Dei members can help. Contact Jon Paulson with any questions at 651-260-8215.
  • Meet Dorcas and Her Family over Supper Wednesday, January 24. In recent months, Gloria Dei has been assisting another ELCA congregation in supporting Dorcas, a young immigrant mom, and her three children, here from Nigeria. In October, the Sanctuary Support Team gathered winter clothing for the family. Now we are eager for Gloria Dei members to get to know them and hear their story. Join the family at the Wednesday evening supper on January 24. Meet in the Colonial Room at 5:15 p.m.. Questions? Contact Jon Paulson at 651-260-8215.
