MFSA Annual Conference Luncheon

Bishop Minerva Carcaño to Speak at the MFSA Peace & Justice Luncheon in Corpus

MINERVA-CARCANO-IMMIGRATION-facebookPlans are in process for the 5th Annual MFSA Peace and Justice Luncheon at Annual Conference (June 11-14) in Corpus Christi. We are very pleased to have as our speaker Bishop Minerva Carcaño, who is currently serving as Bishop to the Los Angeles Area, the California-Pacific Conference. Bishop Carcaño became the first Hispanic woman to be elected to the episcopacy of The United Methodist Church in 2004. She is a fierce advocate for human rights and social justice.

A native of Edinburg, TX, Bishop Carcaño spent her early years aspiring to make a difference in the lives of persons who faced poverty and discrimination. Not forgetting her roots and early hopes, her ministry has always involved work with the poor, with farm workers, immigrants, and refugees, even as she encourages congregations to work ecumenically and to be active in community organizing. Of her tireless work, she has said, “The road of ministry has not always been easy, but it has always been an incredible blessing, and it has always been home.”

Look for more about our presence at Annual Conference, or better yet, help us plan this important witness.  Contact Anne Mund ennadnum@hotmail.com for more information.
