Vigil this Saturday – Also Training

Vigil this Saturday – Also Training

Greetings! A friendly reminder that we will be gathering for Prayer and Vigil this Saturday, February 1st at  11 am at West County Detention Facility.  You won’t want to miss this powerful vigil led by Innerchange, a group that works with immigrant unaccompanied minors in Oakland and San Francisco.
We will also be taking a special post-release offering for Janet Ramirez who was released last September, but who still has not been granted authorization to work, making it very difficult for her to support herself and her daughter.  Please bring Bart tickets or cash.  Many thanks!
