Taking a stand
Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, was among 40 participants in the Friday Night Walk, sponsored by Ceasefire Oakland on Aug. 22. For 90 minutes, the walk made its way from At Thy Word Church on International Boulevard through a neighborhood that is no stranger to crime. "I loved the way people lit up when we walked down the street," said John Watkins, coordinator for life and justice at the Diocese of Oakland. "Families came out of their houses and waved at us." Representatives of Oakland Catholic Worker, JustFaith and St. Benedict Parish in Oakland were among the walkers, who included Father Jay Matthews, pastor of St. Benedict; Father Jayson Landeza, Oakland Police Department chaplain; Father Jesus Nieto pastor of St. Anthony-Mary Help of Christians Parish in Oakland; Deacon Earl JOHson of St. Louis Bertrand Parish in Oakland; and Fathers Alex Castillo and Jim Schexnayder.
