HOUSE NEWS: Going to the SOA

Dear friends,

Thanks so much to all the students from AED who did such an incredible job helping out with the cafe yesterday. And thanks too to all who made soup and dropped it off at the house. It was delicious!

Later this week, about 15 of us with ties to the GCW will be heading to Columbus, GA to participate in a vigil and action at the School of the Americas, where thousands of Latin American soldiers who were later implicated in horrible human rights abuses have been trained on U.S. soil and with our tax dollars. We’ll have the chance while there to meet Jon Sobrino, SJ, considered to be the sole survivor of the 1989 massacre at the University of Central America in San Salvador that claimed the lives of his 6 Jesuit brothers, their co-worker and her daughter. For more information on the School of the Americas, visit www.soaw.org.

Join us if you can this week at the Roundtable. Rose Caraway, a UF doctoral student in religion, will share with us about her experiences in Cuba, the house-church movement there and the economic and political situation, especially following the recent hurricanes.

And if you know of any good housing options next semester for Iris, who is doing the Metanoia semester with us right now, send us an email. Close to campus is a big plus for her and her bike!

In peace,

John
