Join us for Theology on Tap this November. The theme for the series is Preparing Our Hearts for the Year of Mercy. Throughout the series each week a new speaker will join us to explore the call to mercy that Pope Francis has asked us each to commit to during the upcoming Jubilee Year.
The first week of this series we will be joined by Patty Repikoff from Catholic Community Serives. For on talk on the relationship of mercy and immigration.
How Far Would You Walk to Feed Your Family?
Patty will offer a brief examination of our Church’s social teaching and contemporary call to stand with and seek justice for immigrants, the realities which compel families to leave their country of origin, and challenges present within our existing immigration system. This will include presentation, reflection, and opportunities for deeper involvement in the issue.
Patricia (Patty) Repikoff has served as a Lay Ecclesial Minister for 44 years, beginning as Jesuit Volunteer, and later, Pastoral Life Director of two parishes, Coordinator of Eastside Catholic Latino/Hispanic Ministry, and now, Pastoral Advocate for Mission at CCS/CHS and Adjunct Faculty at Seattle University. Patty’s education includes degrees from Gonzaga U (BA), University of Puget Sound (M Ed.), Seattle U (M. Div.), and San Francisco Theological Seminary (D. Min). She is a proud member of St. James Cathedral.
