Your End-of-the-Week Reminders

YOUR END-OF-WEEK REMINDERS, followed by the September SAC report.

Thursday 10-22, 7 p.m. Poet Brenda Hillman, Jimmye Hillman's daughter, reads for the UA Poetry Center reading series.  Poetry Center, 1508 E. Helen Street.  "One of contemporary poetry's most electic and formally innovative writers."   Free.

Friday 10-23 -- TWO matters

3:30 to 4:45 p.m.  "Ayotzinapa and Mexico's Disappeared," A conversation with MD / PhD Carlos Martin Beristain.
UA Environmental and National Resources 2 Building, Room South 107.  The building is on the south edge of the University of Arizona campus, directly west of the 6th St. parking garage. The auditorium is in the southwest corner of the building, ground floor.  Berestain, member of an international delegation investigating impunity in Mexico and particularly the disappearance of 43 students who went missing from Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers' College in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico, is widely known for his human rights work in Guatemala and elsewhere.  He is a psychologist as well as MD, brings a broad, culturally-sensitive perspective.  Spanish, with English translation.  Professor Elizabeth Oglesby, who is promoting the event, is hugely respected for her own long-term work in Guatemala.  I've heard Berestain in the past and strongly recommend this presentation.  FREE.  All welcome.

6 p.m. SAC House Mass / Potluck / Quarterly Meeting, home of Marjorie King and Jim Steinman, 3000 E. Linden (just W of Country Club and 8 blocks N. of Speedway), 207-.9114.  Please RSVP to Marjorie,, so she will have a rough count of how many to expect.  Fr. Mallory celebrates.  Food:  There are several vegetarians and a few "usually no meat on Friday" folk in our midst, but omnivors are welcome to bring meat dishes if they like.  ALSO, please try to be on time, as we open with the Mass.  AGENDA:  limited reports, only necessary decisions.  Possible look at "what are we overlooking?"  (See SAC September report below).

Saturday 10-24.  Frances Hicks Funeral, 1 p.m., St. Michael's. PLEASE NOTE FRANCES' FUNERAL IS AT 1:00 PM THIS SATURDAY

Sunday 10-25.  4th Sunday Special Collection will be for the MEALS PROGRAMS, not SAC, as our designated collection for Fowler Fund was switched to Oct. 11.  Bring your checkbook!  Meals Programs need about $300 per month just to keep Casa Maria sack lunches going.  The new Bazaar Committee is meeting at 9 a.m., the time publicist Katrina can join us.
