Deanery 5 - Social Justice Speaker Series Begins on May 5

Deanery 5 is restarting their Social Justice Speaker series. The new series will select a key theme of Catholic Social Teaching and provide a variety of speakers whose social action focuses on that theme.

For 2008, the selected theme is Solidarity and the focus is “Immigration and Refugees”. The first speaker for 2008 will be Mark McGregor, SJ, who will present his award winning documentary Posada which chronicles the lives of three unaccompanied minor immigrants and their trials and tribulations of finding a home in the U.S.

This talk and showing of Posada is scheduled for May 5, 2008 at 7:15 PM at Church of the Ascension, corner of Prospect Rd and Miller Ave in Saratoga. The showing and subsequent question and answer period with Fr Mark McGregor is scheduled for two hours. There is no charge for this event but a goodwill offering is requested.
