Over UVa's spring break in early March, 17 people from Canterbury Student Ministry and Ukirk, Westminster Presbyterian's campus ministry, went on a pilgrimage to the US-Mexico border, traveling between Tucson, AZ, Nogales, AZ/Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, and Douglas, AZ/Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico. The group met with deportees at migrant centers and spoke with faith groups and individuals working to alleviate poverty and confront injustice. They walked through the desert as teams filled water barrels for migrants and stood next to the 20-foot wall that stands like a wound along our southern border. This was not a mission trip in the sense of having a "job" to do while there. The purpose was to bear witness to the love of Christ in an area of the world much talked about in the public political discourse in less than compassionate ways. Eyes were opened, hearts were moved, and relationships were formed in the name of our God of Love.
On Sunday, April 24, Grace Aheron presented at the adult education forum about her work with the United Nations Paris Agreement around global climate change, the role of the Episcopal Church in the movement for climate justice, and how St. Paul's can be involved as a church community.

Additionally, members of the Stewardship of Creation Committee hope to continue conversations about sustainability in our walks as Christians.
