Kino Border Initiative –  In our parish effort to connect with the situations affecting migrants on our borders, we reached out to Jesuit Refugee Service/USA and the Kino Border Initiative (KBI). These Jesuit organizations companion, serve direct assistance, and advocate for people migrating to a better life.  A small delegation of St. Peter parishioners volunteered to visit the KBI in Nogales, Mexico.
