Sanctuary Now Ministry News – February 2018

The Sanctuary Now Core Team has been very busy in January. We are learning what it means to companion our Sanctuary Guest, Ingrid and we are learning that we have to be quick on our feet and change our plans at a moment’s notice. You, UUCB members & friends, have joined us in this endeavor and we thank you.

 

Here are some of the activities we have participated in January; Sanctuary Reflection Circles, Sanctuary trainings & volunteer potlucks, Vigil for Eliseo Jurado (Ingrid’s partner who was detained by ICE), Vigils for Ingrid, taking Ingrid’s message to the Women’s March and more. We have been busy!
