The Archdiocese of Philadelphia hosted a July 27 seminar to develop parish-based support for immigrants facing detention and deportation. Organized by Auxiliary Bishop Edward M. Deliman and Mary Laver of POWER Interfaith, the three-hour workshop combined presentations, prayer and reflection, drawing some 200 attendees from 30 parishes as well as the Philadelphia community at large.
A follow-up session has been scheduled for Sept. 7 at an as-yet undecided location. For more information, contact Mary Laver at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Photos by Gina Christian)
