Social Action Summer Institute (SASI)

SASI 2020 

May 1 - One of the highlights of Roundtable membership is our annual Social Action Summer Institute, otherwise known as SASI. SASI has always been a wonderful occasion to gather in-person, pray with one another, hear from knowledgable speakers, visit Catholic Campaign for Human Development funded organizations, and to build relationships among other social action directors. This July, the Roundtable Board of Directors alongside our national partners and collaborators, was looking forward to hosting our annual event, which would have highlighted the very important issue of mental health.   

Unfortunately, this probably comes as no surprise that during this time of COVID-19 and stay at home orders, this year's SASI is cancelled. The Roundtable board was hopeful that the event, which was scheduled to take place from July 23-26 at Emory University in Atlanta would be late enough into the summer that it would not be affected by COVID-19; however, due to an abundance of caution for all of our participants, this year's event cannot take place.  

During this time of transition and uncertainty, the board knows that we are all in this boat together, and we will weather the storm together. Although we will not be able to gather together in-person this summer, Roundtable is committed to serving our members through a variety of opportunities, including but not limited to: 

  • Monthly prayer opportunities for social action directors led by social action directors;
  • video conferencing check-ins;
  • on-going conversations on the Virtual Roundtable; and finally,
  • SASI 2021 taking place at Emory University in Atlanta.

We are disappointed that we will not be able to see each of you in person this summer, but we pray that everyone is staying healthy these days. Thank you for your continued support of the Roundtable, and please know of our prayers for all of you, your families and your ministries at this time! 

El Instituto de Verano de Acción Social 2020

1 de mayo - Uno de los aspectos más destacados de la membresía de la Mesa Redonda es nuestro Instituto de Verano de Acción Social anual, también conocido como SASI. SASI siempre ha sido una ocasión maravillosa para reunirse en persona, orar unos con otros, escuchar a oradores expertos, visitar organizaciones financiadas por la Campaña Católica para el Desarrollo Humano y construir relaciones entre otros directores de acción social. Este mes de julio, la Junta Directiva de la Mesa Redonda junto con nuestros socios y colaboradores nacionales, esperaba organizar nuestro evento anual, que habría destacado el tema muy importante de la salud mental.

Desafortunadamente, estoy seguro de que no es una sorpresa para todos ustedes que durante este tiempo de COVID-19 y las órdenes de quedarse en casa, el SASI de este año se cancele. La junta de la Mesa Redonda tenía la esperanza de que el evento, que estaba programado para llevarse a cabo del 23 al 26 de julio en la Universidad Emory de Atlanta, llegaría lo suficientemente tarde en el verano como para que COVID-19 no lo afectara; sin embargo, debido a la abundancia de precaución para todos nuestros participantes, el evento de este año no puede llevarse a cabo. Durante este tiempo de transición e incertidumbre, la junta sabe que estamos todos juntos en este bote, y enfrentaremos la tormenta juntos. Aunque no podremos reunirnos en persona este verano, Roundtable se compromete a servir a nuestros miembros a través de una variedad de oportunidades, que incluyen, entre otras:

  • Oportunidades mensuales de oración para directores de acción social dirigidos por directores de acción social;
  • registros de videoconferencias;
  • conversaciones en curso en la Mesa Redonda Virtual; y finalmente,
  • SASI 2021 que tiene lugar en la Universidad Emory en Atlanta.

Estamos decepcionados de que no podamos verlos a todos en persona este verano, pero rezamos para que todos se mantengan saludables en estos días. ¡Gracias por su continuo apoyo a la Mesa Redonda, y por favor conozca nuestras oraciones por todos ustedes, sus familias y sus ministerios en este momento!
