On April 25th the PCIC/Arizona Interfaith Network will gather clergy again in Casa Grande to continue the push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. PCIC clergy and leaders will be meeting with Cong. Ron Barber on April 4th and leaders from around the state will be meeting with our senators and representatives. Local immigration events are scheduled at St. John’s UMC and Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church (see calendar for details).
A Bach Birthday Concert will be held to benefit PCIC on March 24th at 2:00 pm at Dove of Peace ELCA. Rev. Steve Springer and the Dove congregation have been working with PCIC on immigration and other issues since the Fall.
The Tucson Bus Riders’ Union and the folks at Casa Maria have stopped the removal of the Ronstadt Bus Center from downtown as evidenced by the City Council’s recent unanimous vote to not demolish the Center. TBRU is now working with the City to improve it. All are invited to attend an action with Mayor and Council on April 2nd, at 5:30 pm at the Rialto Theatre located at 318 E. Congress Street. Rice and beans from Casa Maria will be served!
Please check the attached calendar for dates for Health Care Civic Academies, immigration, environmental and training events.
Enjoy the great weekend ahead. In the spirit of St. Patrick I’ll share one of my Grandma Nora’s favorite blessings: “May the Good Lord take you a week before the Devil knows you're dead.”
