DIGNITY, JUSTICE and HOPE | A Pilgrimage in Solidarity with Immigrants

Sunday | May 6th | 5 PM
Begin: St. Peter Claver Catholic  Church
133 Ward St. | Macon
End: Centenary United Methodist Church
1290 College Ave. | Macon

At Centenary Church,  you are invited to stay for a meal, storytelling, community building, and the sharing of information about current immigration concerns. Shuttles back to St. Peter Claver will be available, but carpooling is recommended.

The pilgrimage is an act of faith and prayer in solidarity with our immigrant sisters and brothers during this anxious time.  The injunction to welcome the stranger is an important teaching within the great religions of the world.  This walk, therefore, is a sign of our commitment to the sacred act of hospitality and to the work of justice as we seek to overcome exclusion, discrimination, violence, and dehumanization. It is not a political protest, but a  peaceful prayer walk.

The pilgrimage will begin at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church with litanies and prayers to set the intention for our journey.  It will end at Centenary United Methodist Church with a meal, the sharing of stories., and information about the current situation for our undocumented neighbors and friends.
