Sunday Service with UUUF
“UU Faith In Action – Immigration Policy: Why Should We Care?”
with Ms. Laura Pichardo-Cruz
The spirit and values which guide Hope CommUnity Center are gospel mandates. Love, hospitality, solidarity, and service are at the core of Catholic social justice teachings, and as people of faith require us to offer a concrete response to the people who are suffering and to uncover the root causes of their life-threatening distress. HCC is committed to the deeper and difficult discussion about the root causes of this migration and the need to address the push/pull factors that influence the desperate decision of poor suffering people, especially children, to make this risk-filled journey and to support those who are here already. Ms. Cruz is the Executive Director of Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka. She will help us begin to understand this important issue that is supported by our UU Values and is part of our legislative ministry.
We are a “lay-led” congregation with a different speaker every Sunday morning. We hear from a wide variety of academic, spiritual, and social justice speakers. Our Sunday Services are designed to illuminate different spiritual paths and strengthen our sense of self, family, and community.
