Training: Visiting Immigrants in Detention, Sat., Nov. 4, 10-12, St. Paul's, Tustin

 In Collaboration with CLUE


The Episcopal Church of the Messiah and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church are partnering to offer a series of Community Trainings in Orange County to raise awareness of issues around immigration and offer ways in which we can assist our neighbors
who are being detained.

How to Visit Immigrants in Detention

In this training, Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC) will offer a thorough overview of the system of immigrant detention on a national scale and offer participants clear tools for visiting detained persons locally. We will also be joined by Sister Greta Ronningen of the Community of Divine Love Monastery who will introduce the basics of CHAPLAINCY as a resource to enrich detainee visitation.

This is an important time for people of faith and conscience to develop a deeper understanding about the crisis facing immigrants in our communities and to put this understanding into action.
