Join us as seven of our parishioners share their experiences dealing with the humanitarian crisis at our southern border. These parishioners are Tucson, AZ winter residents that volunteered their time at a Benedictine Monastery that sheltered asylum seekers. They will share their first hand experiences from the past 3-4 months. This discussion will be held on Sunday, June 26, in the Fireside Room, following the 8:00 am Mass at Holy Family. All are welcome. For more information, please contact Erin Cobb at the Holy Family Offices.
