REPORT: Sanctuary Event at Saint Mark’s

with No Comments

On Wednesday, March 17, Saint Mark's was the location for a gathering of faith communities, activists, family, and friends celebrating the reuniting of Jose Robles with his family after 20 months of detention at the Northwest Detention Center. Prior to entering detention, Jose lived for a year in Sanctuary in Gethsemane Lutheran Church in downtown Seattle. This gathering also marked Jaime Rubio’s upcoming two-year anniversary of being in sanctuary at Saint Mark’s, as he continues to work toward a legal remedy.

This event was covered by local media, including KIRO-7 (story includes video) and KUOW (audio available).

Wednesday's event was co-hosted by Saint Mark's, Gethsemane Lutheran, and the Church Council of Greater Seattle. Some photographs from the event, and a complete video may be seen below.
