NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR OUTREACH MINISTRY
Volunteers are needed to assist with a new ministry to people who have been detained at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. On July 15th, Bishop Elizondo blessed and dedicated a mobile home as a new “Welcome Center” equipped to assist people who have no family or friends nearby when released from the Detention Center (about 10% of the population).
The Welcome Center is in need of volunteers (bilingual preferred, but anyone is welcome) to help run the Center 3:00PM – 7:00PM daily. The Center also is accepting donations of supplies to stock the shelves: water bottles, coffee, sugar, juice, instant soup, etc. Gifts of clothing will be graciously received Because many of the people are released with only the clothes they were wearing when detained. Monetary donations will be used to purchase bus passes, food vouchers, and additional supplies.

OFFERING OF LETTERS
BREAD FOR THE WORLD 2015, FEED OUR CHILDREN
Please join the Holy Disciples parishioners on August 16th in a BREAD FOR THE WORLD 2015, FEED OUR CHILDREN offering of letters. These letters, addressed to our legislators, encourage support for the reauthorization of child nutrition programs.
Bread for the World (BFTW) is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger both at home and abroad. BFTW members support, with bi-partisan political involvement, measures that address the causes of hunger. Each year thousands of churches from many faith traditions take part in this offering of letters. More information is available from parishioner Ramonda Huff.
