St. Michael’s University Church to Serve Communal Meal in Wake of Unsolved Vandalism

After two months, the St. Michael’s University Church members and campus ministry community are still puzzled as to why someone vandalized St. Michael’s property or who committed the crime. 

The glass doors to the sanctuary were shot out and the signs have been repeatedly stolen and damaged. The violence started only weeks after the church began to display signs in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

The original vandalism was reported in The Bottom Line, Daily Nexus, the Independent and Noozhawk

In response to this vandalism, Progressive Christians and St. Michael’s will host a free meal open to all who stand in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Please come join us at St. Michael’s in Isla Vista for a free communal meal at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015.

St. Michael’s University Church is located at 6586 Picasso Road in Isla Vista. Enter the parking lot near the southeast corner of El Greco and Camino Pescadero.

— Noelle Clearwater is a member of the Progressive Christians Group of St. Michael's University Church.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
