HISPANIC YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY TO HOLD CONCERT FOR JUSTICE

Chicago, IL (June 7, 2007)—The Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office for Hispanic Catholics Young Adult Ministry will hold a concert in support of legislation for a more just immigration reform, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at Gordon Tech High School, 3633 N. California Ave., Chicago.

Jorge Rivera, Coordinator of the Hispanic Young Adult Ministry, will be playing selections from his latest CD, !Reinventando el Amor! "More than ninety percent of the young adults I minister to are first generation Latinos. It’s for them and for all the rest of us in this country in search of a more dignified and humane life that I have titled this concert, Immigrant, your future will change!" Rivera said.

!Reinventando el Amor! was named Spanish Album of the Year by the United Catholic Music and Video Association during the 7th Annual Unity Awards Show this past October.

Doors will open at 6 p.m., and tickets for the event are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. All proceeds will benefit Hispanic Young Adult Ministry in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
