Road to Sheridan: Sunday Faith Response to Separated Families
June 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Clergy of ten Oregon churches have committed to participating in a Sunday worship service in response to immigrant children who have been separated from their families. We are asking all faith leaders and faith communities throughout Oregon to join us in Sheridan for this special moment of prayer-in-action.
The Sunday Service in Sheridan (called “The Road to Sheridan: Love Leads Us”) will include all the traditional worship elements (communion, prayer, music, sermon, etc.), but it will also include a direct ask of the Prison to allow ongoing clergy access to detainees so they can receive the pastoral care they need and have requested – and so that we can learn more about how they are being treated and whether or not they are being reunited with their children, spouses and other family.
Note that bringing your own chairs or blankets would be very helpful, and packing your own sack lunch might be a good idea.
The service will take place just outside the Sheridan Prison. Main parking will be at Sheridan High School (433 S Bridge St, Sheridan, OR 97378), which is a little over a mile from the prison.
