Event description

Description

At the Episcopal Diocesan Convention in April 2018, the Episcopal Diocese of Utah passed a resolution that, among other things, called us “to discern becoming Sanctuary Congregations and Institutions, and determine how best to serve as places of welcome, safety, healing and other forms of material and pastoral support for those targeted due to immigration status or some perceived status of difference.” This seminar is offered as a next step in this discernment process. It is intended to provide some larger context and background, with a basic primer on U.S. immigration law and policy, as well as conversation with diocesan clergy and members of other faith communities regarding the impact of current policies on those communities and the need for multiple forms of support.

Please RSVP. Boxed lunches from Even Stevens may be ordered in advance for $10 (plus $2.24 processing fee) with your RSVP.
