Interfaith Pilgrimage for Immigrants in Georgia

March 27, 2010

Last year’s Holy Thursday Pilgrimage that took place in my local community

via PJ Edwards:

Beginning this Sunday in Gainesville, GA and ending Friday 2 April in downtown Atlanta, please join in a walking celebration of faith and solidarity that includes song, prayer, testimonials, and fellowship.  The Holy Week Pilgrimage for Immigrants is an interfaith event that shows our unity in the quest to find a comprehensive solution for immigration reform.  It is a living testament to our faith that transcends borders and bids us to overcome discrimination and violence so that we may build just and loving relationships.

Please see the information about each segment of the pilgrimage in the attached flyer.  I’m also attaching the press release for the Holy Week Interfaith Pilgrimage for Immigrants.

Finally, I have also attach a couple pictures from last year’s Holy Thursday Pilgrimage that took place in my local community.  It was a phenomenal event that closed with a feet washing ceremony in Marietta Square (Cobb County, GA) where people born in the U.S. washed the feet of recent immigrants.
