Hunger Strike Day 5 starts with a prayer

18 05 2008

Day 5 of the Hunger Strike began under gray skies, but with a blessing: four workers who are supporting the strike attended Sunday Morning Mass at Saint Aloysius Roman Catholic Church.  Pastor Hug greeted and blessed the workers, gave them a chance to tell their stories, then spoke in the support of the hunger strike and insisted on the need for faith communities to do “God’s work on the ground as well as above.”

Pastor Hug also encouraged his parishioners to come out to support the workers at 12 noon on Wednesday, May 21, when about a dozen more hunger strikers will be joining the fast at a rally at the Capitol Hill Reflecting Pool.
