At the 2015 diocesan convention, the Episcopal Church in Minnesota resolved to “Work with local and national gun violence prevention groups” and “Advocate for the passage of common-sense gun violence prevention legislation both locally and nationally” in order to help prevent gun violence. The diocese is inviting parishioners to the Lobby Day on Tuesday, April 26 coordinated by the group Moms Demand Action, to meet with Minnesota legislators and advocate for gun sense policies. Several St. John’s staff and members have elected to attend. Anyone who is interested is invited to participate as well. The event will begin at 10 am at Christ Lutheran Church with a training session and will continue throughout the day.
