901 Presidents Dr, Stockton, CA 95211http://www.diosanjoaquin.org/called-safe-place-gods-people
Michael Curry, the presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church and the first African American to serve in that capacity, will speak at University of the Pacific as part of a three-day, three-city revival, "Called to be...A Safe Place for All of God's People." The weekend kicks off in Stockton on Friday, Nov. 17, with an evening of prayer, music and testimony bringing together ecumenical and inter-faith partners for a peace rally. We will come together to listen to the needs and concerns of our communities, especially those affected by DACA and immigration reform policies.
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Bishop David Rice, will share reflections on ways we can respond to these concerns as a people of faith, across denominational and faith tradition lines.
A special ingathering will be held to support Faith in the Valley, a nonprofit, interfaith organization with which the diocese partners in their work around health care, immigration, and affordable housing.
Dinner will be provided for those in attendance. All events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested.
Additional sessions will be held Nov. 18 at St. James Cathedral in Fresno and Nov. 19 at St. Paul's in Bakersfield.
