The Immigration Ministry, invites everyone – individuals, classrooms and parishes – to utilize these resources during the Lenten season to nourish a deeper compassion and a lived spirituality of following Christ. Let us be challenged to see the face of Christ in all those we call stranger, to see the suffering of Christ in the immigrant, and to work toward immigration reform.

Rosario del Inmigrante (Aquí)

"Dear friends, Lent is the favorable season for renewing our encounter with Christ, living in his word, in the sacraments and in our neighbor. The Lord, who overcame the deceptions of the Tempter during the forty days in the desert, shows us the path we must take. May the Holy Spirit lead us on a true journey of conversion, so that we can rediscover the gift of God’s word, be purified of the sin that blinds us, and serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need... Let us pray for one another so that, by sharing in the victory of Christ, we may open our doors to the weak and poor. Then we will be able to experience and share to the full the joy of Easter.~Pope Francis, 2017 Message for Lent
