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.
