Why do we care?
Many Christians have declared President Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees does not represent who they are or their faith. The order imposes a four-month ban on all refugees trying to enter the U.S., and excludes all Syrian refugees until further notice. The executive order was swiftly denounced by religious leaders from around the country. Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark said, “The executive action does not show the United States to be an open and welcoming nation. It’s the opposite of what it means to be American.” Cardinal Blasé Cupich of Chicago issued a statement in which he stated, “The world is watching as we abandon our commitments to American values. They lower our estimation in the eyes of the many peoples who want to know America as a defender of human rights and religious liberty, not a nation that targets religious populations and then shuts its doors on them.” The United States Conference of Bishops stated that the bishops “strongly disagree” with the ban on refugees from several Muslim countries. A church that stops defending the unborn has ceased to meaningfully defend the gospel of Jesus Christ. But the church is just as vigorous in defending the undocumented and those refugees who wish to come to our shores.
Every year Archdiocese of Seattle Young Adults hosts a Holy Thursday pilgrimage in Seattle, welcoming hundreds of young adults to the city for an evening walk of prayer and reflection, stopping at several parishes and ending at the cathedral.
Planning is underway for the 2017 pilgrimage and the leadership team needs your help as a volunteer! If you can give your gift of time and talent, please contact Edwin Ferrera at email@example.com.
There are numerous ways to help with this event and your contribution is greatly valued!

The Facebook page for UCUCC is meant to be a presence so that folks can find out more about us and stay connected. We do want to be clear however, that this is not a page monitored regularly by pastors. Please send prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Center for Spiritual Living is the place where people from all walks of life and spiritual paths come together to learn more about themselves, about Spirit, and about how to use spiritual principles to build a better life and world.
We are a small, sincere community of Zen practitioners in West Seattle. Please join us any Sunday morning for meditation in good company.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here! The United Church of Christ encourages the spiritual quest of each person and its churches are places to explore that journey with no tests of creed or dogma.
