El Salvador Weekend October 7-8

This year, we will celebrate our partnership with Cristosal and El Salvador October 7-8. There are many opportunities for folks to get involved.

On Sunday October 7 Noah Bullock, executive director of Cristosal, will be our guest preacher and the speaker at our Adult Forum.

Columbus day has come into controversy in recent years. We thought there was no better time to look at issues of justice that continue to connect North America and Central America, and to talk about Human Rights. Noah Bullock, executive director of Cristosal, will talk about the Human Rights based approach his organization has been taking in the region, and will talk about ways that people of faith can make a difference.

On Monday October 8, Noah will present at a forum co-hosted by Holy Communion and Washington University’s Danforth Center:

Please join us when Noah Bullock, Executive Director of Cristosal, discusses how a human rights-based approach, grounded in faith systems, informs work in El Salvador and with U.S. Policy. How are the systems of economics, migration, and violence connected between Central America and the U.S., and what can people of faith can do in response?

A panel of local leaders will join the conversation to discuss some of the promise and challenges to implementing these strategies in the St. Louis area.
