It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin in our 2019 Pilgrimage of Hope. This pilgrimage is a visible witness of our standing in solidarity with and raising awareness of the plight of immigrants and refugees in the Central Valley. Our hope and intention in this walk is raise awareness of the struggles our sister and brother immigrants and refugees face daily, while also raising money to support Legal Defense Funds throughout the Valley.
We will begin the Pilgrimage of Hope on May 4, 2019 at our cathedral in Fresno, and will conclude on the Day of the Immigrant in Sacramento on May 20, 2019. This will involve sixteen consecutive days of walking, praying, and reflecting.
We invite you to join us in any way you are able:
- Walk with us
- Pray with us
- Share our journey with your friends
- Follow us on Facebook (EDSJ: A Safe Place for All God’s People)
- Join us in Sacramento on May 20, 2019
