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
Our Lady of Hope, Philadelphia, all weekend Masses.
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.
