Guest Preacher Bishop Marigza

First Congregational United Church of Christ, 1126 SW Park
1126 SW Park Avenue
Portland, OR 97205, US (map)



Bishop Marigza is here for the launch of the U.S. Chapter of the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines. As General Secretary of the United Church of Christ, he has been heavily involved in the movement for indigenous sovereignty, fair wages and basic rights for the Filipino People. Over the past year, he has been particularly involved in the organization Rise up for Rights and Life, which is one of the leading voices against the 14,000 killings in President Duterte's war on drugs. Given the church's long history of struggle against state violence in the Philippines, it is truly an honor to have a practicing liberation theologian in Portland to share with us.

Service will also include a guest performance by the Kasama Band!

9:30-10:25am: pre-service welcome breakfast for Bishop Marigza.

10:25-11:30+: service
