Assisting Refugees and Immigrants in Need
Please pray for me and the team from Catholic Family Center as we travel to Texas and Arizona this week to help Catholic Charities USA care for the needs of the refugees and immigrants coming into the US. This has been in the news so much that it is easy to politicize it. Please resist that temptation. Our faith calls us to do whatever we can to care for the most vulnerable in our society. Please pray for our leaders to be enlightened with solutions that meet the needs of everyone. I look forward to sharing the experience upon my return!
Peace and love,
