Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley will celebrate a Mass on the United States-Mexico border to commemorate the estimated 6,000 people who have died migrating in the desert since 1998 on Tuesday, April 1 at 9 a.m. in Nogales, Arizona.
He will also pray for comprehensive immigration reform.
People are invited to pray the rosary for immigrants in the U.S. and for those who have died in their journey here; to fast during the day while reflecting on immigration reform; to send an electronic postcard to their member of Congress; and to call the toll-free number 1-855-589-5698 to ask their member of Congress to support a path to citizenship.
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.
