10th Annual Unity Church Pilgrimage to New Orleans
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the 10th pilgrimage of Unity members and friends who have gone to respond. Join the 2015 pilgrimage this fall, from October 24-31, and help Unity Church continue to make a difference. This is an opportunity to participate in a service and educational pilgrimage to the city of New Orleans where many of its citizens are still rebuilding their homes and communities a decade later. The week-long trip includes hands-on service projects for participants, meetings with community leaders who are working to rebuild the city, connections with new and old friends, and opportunities to explore the rich and unique culture of the Crescent City. Each pilgrimage also offers time for reflecting on major themes of racial and economic justice in New Orleans related to our communities back in St. Paul. For more information contact Lisa Friedman at email@example.com.
