The Episcopal Church Policy Network recently sent us an alert about the SAFE Act entitled Compassion Should Never Be Criminalized. There are provisions in this particular piece of legislation that can directly affect us and the ministries of many churches.

Please click here to read over the information provided in the alert, consider the request from the Rt. Rev. Susan Goff, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese, to concern ourselves with the immigration issue,* and respond to the alert as your beliefs lead you. If you would like to follow up on this information, please contact Megan McCullough, our Director of Outreach & Mission.

*On October 1, the Rt. Rev. Susan Goff, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Virginia, called on churches of the Diocese to engage in the discussion on immigration reform. Click here for her statement.
