Join us for just one week, to see all sides of this important issue

May 3, 2017 by

Join us for a one-week experience that delves into the life and culture on the US/Mexico border.

We will see first-hand the struggles of immigrants as we visit shelters, agencies and cooperatives that serve them.

This experience is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia. In our commitment to Gospel living and nonviolence, we stand in solidarity with undocumented immigrants.

Since this issue is so close to our hearts, the Sisters of St. Joseph provide a grant to cover half of the cost.

We will be staying at the Sisters’ Grandview Convent in El Paso. Sisters Missy Ljungdahl and Donna Otter live there and will help organize our experience while in El Paso.

Prayer and reflection will be an important part of each of our days.

Space is limited for this experience. We will honor first come, first served in the application process.

PARTICIPANT’S COST: $300 per person (Sisters of St. Joseph cover the additional expense). Also, participants will be responsible for purchasing their own food as we travel to and from El Paso.

ORGANIZED BY: The Sisters of St. Joseph Immigration Committee (Sisters Anna Marie Broxterman, Dian Hall, Judy Stephens, Christina Brodie, Marilyn Wall and Janet LeDuc)

    Sister Judy, is this trip to El Paso tax deductible? I might want to make a donation for services provided to the immigrants. IF I donate , who/want would the check be made to?

    Not sure I can go but maybe. Yvonne Gibbons told me about it and asked me to go.

    Peace to all, LaNay
