Parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will pray for and remember immigrants who have died crossing the border or remain separated from their families at Masses Sunday, Nov. 10.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Cultural Ministries invites everyone to join participating parishes in praying for the passage of immigration reform.
The parish churches and times of Mass include:
St. Patrick, Norristown, Montgomery County, 10 a.m.;
St. Ann, Phoenixville, Chester County, 6 p.m.;
St. Rocco, Avondale, Chester County, 6 p.m.; and

The Masses of Remembrance and Call for Immigration Reform began Nov. 2 in conjunction with el Dia de los Muertos (All Souls Day) and conclude Sunday.
The Office for the Vicar for Cultural Ministries (composed of the Office for Hispanic Catholics, Office for Migrant and Refugees, and Office for Black Catholics) supports through its various efforts the United States Catholic Bishops’ comprehensive immigration plan and the Justice for Immigrants campaign.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
