An 1968 photo of the altar at the Church of the Epiphany in Los Angeles, from the La Raza Photograph Collection, courtesy of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center via RNSThe Rev. Tom Carey, vicar of the Church of the Epiphany, said the church has remained relevant all these years.“It has always been a place that has been at the forefront of social activism,” Carey said.Epiphany has continued to hold Sunday services in Spanish and English online during the pandemic. It offers up its kitchen to prepare meals for delivery to local families and seniors. Clergy have partnered with other groups to address evictions and deportation arrests and have participated in Black Lives Matter protests and rallied for grocery workers demanding hazard pay.To Carey, what makes a place sacred “is what has gone on there in the past” and “what continues to happen there.”In announcing the national designation, the church has launched a GoFundMe initiative to raise $230,000 for a series of renovations. The fundraiser is part of the final phase of the $1 million Restore Epiphany Campaign to help fund the church’s preservation. The church has so far raised more than $780,000.Funds are earmarked toward Epiphany’s leaking basement, which was home to the Chicano newspaper La Raza and stores photos and documentation of the church’s history. The money will also go toward protecting the archives, installing an elevator for ADA-compliant access, and creating meeting rooms for legal and health clinics. They also plan to update the heating and cooling systems. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Católicos por La Raza members demonstrate in Los Angeles, circa 1970.

The group is known for its 1969 confrontation at St. Basil Catholic Church in Los Angeles, where it clashed with police on Christmas Eve as its members tried to confront then-Cardinal James Francis McIntyre about what they said was the church’s neglect of the poor.Fifty years later, Vazquez-Ramos helped organize a 2020 reunion of the now-disbanded Católicos por La Raza group to commemorate the famed demonstration. It was held at Epiphany.To Vazquez-Ramos, many religious institutions are “about making money.”“But here is the difference,” he said. “The Church of the Epiphany continues to be an institution committed to helping its community.”The church’s recognition, Vazquez-Ramos said, is “historically important to our community because there are so many landmarks that are often ignored because they’re not part of the mainstream of America.”This story was originally published by Religion News Service and is republished here with permission. Rector Washington, DC The Church of the Epiphany in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles recently earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Photo: Alejandra Molina/RNSNow, five decades later, the church has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of sites worthy of preservation in the United States.This designation is one of a few listings on the Register related to Chicano history. Of the roughly 86,000 designated sites, less than 8% were associated with African Americans, American Latinos, Asian Americans and other minority groups in 2014, according to the Congressional Research Service. The church announced its recognition in late January.“To have that place recognized for what it has done in the community is important,” Lopez said.Lopez said the church was where she learned community organizing and “how to be there for the people.“It was a very special place because it wasn’t conservative, but yet they had the gospel that said we had to act,” she added. “We had to be active on behalf of our brothers and sisters. That became home for me.” Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit a Press Release Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL Chicano organizer Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales, center, speaks during a lunch gathering at the Church of the Epiphany in November 1968. From the La Raza Photograph Collection, courtesy of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center via RNS[Religion News Service – Los Angeles, California] Lydia Lopez was demonstrating in a picket line in 1968 to support Mexican American educator and activist Sal Castro, who was removed from the classroom after participating in the historic student walkouts, when UCLA professor Juan Gómez-Quiñones told her of a party at the Church of the Epiphany.Lopez loved parties, so she decided to go. The Episcopal parish, located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Lincoln Heights, was embellished with papel picado. Lopez could hear mariachis playing. She recalled being overwhelmed with emotions as she saw how a place of worship embraced her Mexican American identity.“I wept because I needed a place as a Chicana, and I needed a place as a Christian to call home,” said Lopez, who had gone years without being involved in a church after growing up in a Baptist church that she’d come to feel was too conservative.The Church of the Epiphany, founded in 1887, became a center for the flourishing Chicano movement in the 1960s. It’s where activists organized around Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign. It’s where leaders met to plan the East Los Angeles high school student walkouts protesting inequities in their schools, as well as the historic Chicano Moratorium against the Vietnam War draft. Labor leader Cesar Chavez gave speeches in the church hall. In later years, the church played a role in helping Central American refugees fleeing wars.

He described the church as a “mecca” and a “birthplace” of the Chicano movement.As a college student at California State University, Long Beach, he remembers attending meetings in the church’s basement to help his former high school teacher Sal Castro plan the student walkouts.Vazquez-Ramos’ own faith came into play at the height of the Chicano movement.Raised Catholic in Mexico, he became disillusioned with the church in the U.S., where Masses were in Latin. He recognized inequities within the church and became an activist with Católicos por La Raza, a Catholic lay group formed by Mexican Americans in 1969.

Loyd surrendered wearing body armor and with 2 handgunsMarkeith Loyd, the man accused of killing an Orlando police officer, was captured and arrested by law enforcement officers tonight around 7PM at 1156 Lescot Lane in the Carver Shores neighborhood of West Orlando, according to Orlando Police Chief John Mina.“Markeith Loyd was not captured because of a tip, but by good old-fashioned police work,” said Mina. “It was great police work and I congratulate all the officers involved.”Officers from OPD, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the US Marshals were on the scene during Loyd’s capture.According to Mina, Loyd attempted to escape through the back door of the residence when police called for him to surrender, but was confronted by OPD officers, and went back inside the house. He later came out the front door wearing body armor and threw down two handguns, one with a 100-round drum. Mina also said that Loyd physically resisted arrest and suffered minor facial injuries during the arrest.Loyd will be charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the death of Sade Dixon and her unborn child. He was also charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of attempted homicide. No charges have been filed in the shootiing death of OPD Lieutenant Debra Clayton as of yet.Chief Mina said officers used Clayton’s handcuffs to secure Loyd. “It is a long-standing tradition in law enforcement that we use a fallen officer’s handcuffs to apprehend the suspect.”Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings described the emotions felt by all of Central Florida.“I do congratulate all of the law enforcement officers involved in bringing this individual into custody,” said Demings. “This community has been emotionally traumatized for the last eight days. Now it can breathe a collective sigh of relief.”The peaceful outcome surprised many, including Mina.“I thought this would end up in a different situation. I’m very happy it ended up concluding peacefully. But these agencies involved were very professional and very well-trained and I knew they would act with restraint.”It was also learned that those people who helped Loyd evade arrest will be arrested.“This investigation is not going to stop. If people aided him, they will be arrested.”Crimeline received over 1,500 tips from the community, and the reward was raised to $125,000 before Loyd’s capture. The US Marshals added $25,000 to the amount and put Loyd on the 15 most wanted list.Mayors Buddy Dyer of Orlando and Teresa Jacobs of Orange County commented on the capture on their social media accounts.“Thank you Orlando Police and partners for capturing this fugitive,” Dyer said. “Prayers continue for families of fallen officers.”“Manhunt has ended! Continued prayers for the families of Lt Debra Clayton and DFC Norm Lewis,” Jacobs tweeted. “Great work by our heroes in law enforcement!” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address!

Howard Lake | 16 January 2012 | News Advertisement Three party leaders make the Legacy10 pledge to leave a charitable legacy Tagged with: Law / policy legacies AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The leaders of the three main political parties at Westminster have confirmed their support for the Legacy10 campaign: The Rt. Hon David Cameron MP, Rt. Hon Nick Clegg MP and Rt. Hon Ed Miliband MP have all pledged to leave a charitable legacy in their wills.Legacy10, launched in November 2011, is a nationwide campaign to increase the number of people in the UK who leave money to charity in their wills. It urges individuals across the UK to pledge 10% of their estate to charity. With effect from April 2012 any estate which leaves at least 10% (of its taxable wealth) to a charitable cause will be able to take advantage of a reduced rate in inheritance tax, from its current level of 40% down to 36%.Roland Rudd, founder and Chairman of Legacy10, said that the appeal of Legacy10 lay in its simplicity. “We are asking people to make a contribution”, he explained, “to their favourite cultural or charitable cause in their will, the benefit to that cause will be four times bigger than the small loss to the donor. I am so pleased that all of our main political leaders have not only chosen to support Legacy10 but have also made a personal commitment to change their wills to make the pledge.”Currently only 7% of the UK population leave a charitable gift in their will, even though 74% support a charity during their lifetime, according to Legacy Foresight’s ‘Legacy Market Snapshot’, 2011.CAF Chief Executive John Low welcomed the pledge, saying: “CAF warmly welcomes the announcement by each of the three party leaders that they will leave 10% of their estates to charity.“This is an excellent gesture, and one that will doubtless be warmly received by the public and charities alike – especially in the current economic climate, where demand on many charities is growing while overall funding for many charities is falling.“We know from the success of the Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge in the US that where prominent people in society pledge to give a substantial amount of their wealth to charity, many will follow.”www.legacy10.comTaking action with Legacy10Is your charity supporting the Legacy10 campaign?

The President hinted over the weekend that he would sign the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, saying “we’ll get the farm bill,” at the White House Congressional Ball. Trump said the bill was in “very, very good shape,” according to the Hagstrom Report. The House and Senate each passed the farm bill last week and Trump must sign it before December 31, 2018, when commodity title programs start to expire.The 2014 farm bill expired at the end of September, but some programs were allowed to operate beyond expiration. Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture needs further action by Congress this week. Funding for USDA and the Food and Drug Administration expire at the end of this week and federal agencies are preparing for a partial government shutdown as lawmakers and President Trump fight over spending and a border wall.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Trump Expected to Sign Farm Bill This Week

WhatsApp Urgent calls for Government to prioritise Donegal fishing sector AudioHomepage BannerNews Pinterest Facebook Harps come back to win in Waterford There are urgent calls on the Government to prioritise the Donegal fishing sector in Brexit funding.There are genuine fears that the county is set to take the biggest hit from the Brexit fallout with fishing fleets to lose around 81% of tonnes of its normal quota.It’s thought that a greater proportion of the Brexit adjustment fund allocated to the county would counteract some of the effects.Speaking during a Donegal County Council Fisheries Committee today, Minister Charlie McConalogue says he is doing all he can to alleviate the ‘big burden’ facing local fishermen:Audio Playerhttps://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/charliefish5pm.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
