Fifteen people from the Massachusetts Conference - including Associate Conference Minister Kelly Gallagher and her family, and volunteers from four churches (Natick, Somerville, Walpole and Amesbury) - gathered at Arizona's border with Mexico on Sunday for several days of witness, study and service around immigrant justice. The group joined more than 100 other UCCers from across the country to create a network of allies.
The gathering, which finishes tomorrow, was hosted by the Southwest Conference, UCC and Good Shepherd UCC church in Sahuarita, Arizona.
