A reminder of CACINA's Mission Statement:

We are an inclusive Catholic community committed to living out the Gospel message of Jesus and offering sacramental justice to all regardless of gender identity, marital status, or sexual orientation, and we are committed to fighting for social justice to end racial disparities.

In that spirit - It is Asian American and Pacific Islander Month
Please view this 10 minute video to gain insight into Asian racism and stereotyping.

Bad driver. Math wizard. Model minority. In this hilarious and insightful talk, eighteen-year-old Canwen Xu shares her Asian-American story of breaking stereotypes, reaffirming stereotypes, and driving competently on her way to buy rice. Canwen Xu's slogan for life is “Canwen can win.”

Born in Nanjing, China, she moved to the United States when she was two years old, and since then has lived in some of the whitest states in the country, including North Dakota, South Dakota and Idaho. A senior at Timberline High School, Canwen is passionate about politics, and is the national membership director and Idaho state director for the Young Democrats High School Caucus. Also a programmer, she started an all-girls computer science workshop called Code For Fun and received National Runner-Up in the 2014 NCWIT Aspirations in Computing competition.

The CACINA Franciscan Community of Reconciliation officially welcomed Brother Richard Moran and Brother Victor Ray in to the community.

Brother Tony Green led the ceremony in the absence of Minister General Frank Betancourt due to illness.

The Franciscan Community of Reconciliation includes:

Brothers Victor Ayala - Frank Betancourt - Michael Dakota - Chris Goff - Tony Green - Richard Moran - Victor Ray - Tony Santore - Dante Taratini

May 17: Week 20 - The Ongoing Nakba

Read the full entry online.

For Palestinians, May 15 is Nakba Day. That is the day following the Israeli Independence Day on the Gregorian calendar. The term Nakba refers to the 1948 catastrophe when over 1,000,000 Palestinians were forced from their homes or fled in fear for their lives. But this use of the term in the past tense suggests that the Nakba was over and done 70 years ago. This is not the case, as the events of 1948 were just part of a consistent and ongoing process that dates back to the Balfour Declaration and continues today.

Our guest will be announced soon.
