Prayers for Immigration Reform
Prayer is essential on this journey to compassionate comprehensive immigration reform. Not only is prayer necessary for converting minds and hearts towards the immigrant and the issue of immigration, but it is critical for sustaining the hopes and efforts of immigrant supporters in the face of significant challenges. We invite you to join with the numerous parishes and religious communities that have been praying on a daily or weekly basis until Congress votes on immigration reform.
We offer various prayer resources in line with the Church’s liturgical calendar to support parishes, schools, religious communities, etc. along the journey.
