Fast4Famililes Visits St. Scholastica

Fast4Families, an organization that is conducting a bus tour to 32 states and 100 congressional districts to promote immigration reform and ask supporters to fast each Wednesday during Lent, enjoyed the monastery's hospitality March 12-13, staying overnight at the retreat center and attending Mass and breakfast with the sisters the following morning. Fort Smith Mayor Sandy Sanders, Immaculate Conception pastor Fr. John Antony and others came to listen to Fast4Families speakers and local DREAMers Humberto Marquez and Lidia Mondragon tell their stories. After breakfast, the group had a meeting at Congressman Womack's office, attended a rally at University of Arkansas--Fayetteville, and held a town meeting at the Jones Center.
