|NEWS AROUND THE DIOCESE|
2nd Sotheby West ‘Not Annual’ Art Auction
Everyone is invited to attend an art auction on Saturday, April 23 at 6:00 p.m. at St. John the Baptist (Glendale). The party starts with a happy (half) hour and a chance to peruse the art. The auctioneer will begin the fun at 6:30 p.m. There will be programs, paddles and silent auction items! Event tickets will be on sale for $5 at the door. Refreshments will be served. Cash or checks only (credit cards NOT accepted). No nursery services will be provided.
|COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES|
Canon Richard Morrison, Canon for Ecumenical and Community Relations, is constantly developing contacts with various organizations offering services to many different groups. As outreach opportunities become available for our churches, they will be shared here.
Community Conversation on Living Wage
Economic Inequality affects our community. Workers, ethical business owners and concerned community members have realized that the current minimum wage in Arizona is in no way a “living wage.” Learn and share about how people of diverse populations are affected by the need for a living wage and better working conditions in Arizona. As people of faith, come and learn how to get involved and make a difference in our community. Join Arizona Faith Network on Thursday, April 28 at 6:30 p.m. at Papago Buttes Church of the Brethren (2450 N. 64th St., Scottsdale, AZ 85257).
