There are three prayer options for the efforts to save our Austin neighborhood schools:
. Prayer for Neighborhood Schools before the April 1st vigil (and after the health & wellness fair). Join other parents tonight from 8:30-9:30pm at our house. Come and go. Desserts provided. For more info email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
. Friday prayer vigil in the House Chapel, and Nightlight Vigil on the South Steps. To sign up for a 20 minute block, contact Bee at 512-472-3903 or email@example.com.
Below are details on the Vigil for the Future of Texas taken from the www.texasimpact.org site:
“It’s not a joke: The House is voting on the budget on April Fool’s Day.
On April 1st, the Texas House of Representatives will vote on House Bill 1— a budget that closes schools, hikes college tuition, eliminates pre-K programs, shutters nearly all of the state’s nursing homes, devastates community-based services for people with disabilities, and will ultimately leave 335,000 Texans jobless, reversing our state’s fragile economic recovery.
Please join people like you who care about the future of Texas for a vigil to preserve our state.
