Potluck Fundraiser for CIELO August 20, 2-4:00 p.m.

St. Benedict friends,   planning has been underway  to have SBC participate as part of the  Interfaith Works communityfor wesmaller congregations to host a potluck/fundraiser for CIELO on August 20. The event would meet dual purposes of building faith community networksas well as supporta fundraiser for vulnerable families.  

Earlier you may have heard the word “picnic”  but we  shifted to a potluck INDOORS.  Roasted chicken will be provided. You bring a side dish or a dessert.   Indoors is more conducive to mingling  where we can meetparishionersfrom other congregations, AND avoid yellow jackets and weather vagaries. In addition, it would be easier for CIELO to make a presentation about what they do and what they have witnessed with  Latino families  fearful of a new deportation focus.  What is NEWis that categories of work visas and ability to stay in the USAare now at risk of deportation, where they had not been prior.

Co-hosted by Interfaith Works, St. Benedict Episcopal Church, Holy Wisdom Inclusive Catholic Community, and Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, thus far.  Location: 1601 North St SE., Olympia.

(Across from Olympia HS.)    Put the date on your calendars. Flyer to come.
