USCCB: December 12 to be day of prayer for immigrant families

December 05, 2016

Dioceses in the United States will mark the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (December 12) as a day of prayer and solidarity with families of immigrants.

“So many families are wondering how changes to immigration policy might impact them,” said Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, vice president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. “We want them to know the Church is with them, offers prayers on their behalf, and is actively monitoring developments at the diocesan, state, and national levels to be an effective advocate on their behalf.”
