On Sunday, January 12th, at 3:00 p.m. in Plaza Park, the Oxnard Police Department, along with many local faith leaders, are coming together to hold a community service. The purpose of the event is to bring people of different beliefs together to work toward a common problem. Police Chief Scott Whitney has been working with these faith leaders to organize an interfaith event in which Oxnard can unite and display the strength of our community. The event will also offer an opportunity for all in attendance to help make positive change in the lives of local homeless families and individuals.
Every participating faith group in “Oxnard Together” has committed to working with Oxnard’s Housing Authority to identify and assist specific individuals or families that are facing homelessness.
Chief Whitney stated, “The commitments that some of these groups are making will be life changing for some of our underprivileged. In this modern age, many people don’t know how to leverage their individual skills, capacities and gifts for the direct betterment of the community. Our faith communities are often uniquely qualified to help build resilience in our cities. We’re very excited for this event.”
This interfaith service is expected to last approximately one hour. All are invited to attend.
