May Day with the Church Council of Greater Seattle: Upholding Sanctuary

Upholding Sanctuary:
Re-Launch of the Sanctuary Movement
Monday, May 1
9 a.m.
Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral 
1245 10th Ave. E., Seattle. 

Faith communities, people of faith, and friends rooted in social justice are invited to gather together for a time of prayer, story-telling, and commitments by congregations to accompany and offer solidarity to immigrants and refugees.

Churches, synagogues, mosques and temples and the wider faith community are united by the perennial tradition of welcoming the stranger as neighbor, alleviating suffering, removing fear and humanizing situations of injustice through solidarity and systems change. We exercise our spiritual commitments of hospitality, accompaniment and rapid response as part of the equity and social justice movement of liberation; "no one is free until we all are free".
