Join Fr Tommy, members of St Margaret’s and other churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana for a Global School in El Salvador
The Central American Refugee Crisis: A faithful response
Sponsored by Cristosal.org
Dates: March 22-29, 2019
Registration deadline: December 22, 2018
In 2016 alone, an estimated 244,200 people were internally displaced in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. As people of faith, we are called to advocate for justice for all, especially the most vulnerable. This seminar provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding of human rights, apply this understanding to the Central American refugee crisis, and develop concrete tools to respond.
We will be in El Salvador for the feast of Saint Oscar Romero who will be Canonized in the Roman Catholic Church this October. Please click on this link to find out more information.
