"The Road to Solidarity" - An Immersion Experience to El Salvador to be Offered by CRS in June 2005

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is inviting Just Faith participants and alumni of the Diocese of San Jose to deepen their commitment to building solidarity in their parishes and faith communities by experiencing and learning from solidarity work in El Salvador. The program includes education classes, reflection, an eight-day immersion in El Salvador, and an action plan that each participant will create and implement for building global solidarity in their parish or faith community.

Participants will visit the significant sights of Romero's life, visit projects of CRS working with street gangs, human rights advocates, women's groups and farmers, and will worship in local parishes and meet with its base communities.

An introductory session will be held at the Diocese on Tuesday, April 12 from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. All interested persons should plan to attend this meeting. Estimated costs are $500 for airfare and $450 for lodging, meals, and transportation. For an application or further information, contact Joe Hastings at (510) 524-8575 or by email at Applications will be accepted from all who are interested, but Just Faith participants will be given priority.
