Justice

Our response to injustice calls us to personal and social transformation

We see spirituality and justice as one and commit ourselves to live this out in all our relationships. Systemic evils deprive people of their intrinsic rights and working to help restore these rights is the work of justice.

USCCB-Justice For Immigrants

As we await a decision by the Supreme Court on the legality of the Trump Administration’s attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) protecting the “Dreamers,” we wanted to share information about a webinar Justice for Immigrants (JFI) will present immediately following the SCOTUS decision.

The webinar is scheduled for 2 PM (ET) on the day after SCOTUS announcement on DACA.  Presenters will explain the decision, examine its implication and discuss how we might support DACA recipients in the days and weeks following the SCOTUS decision. We will share the URL as soon as it is available.

In the meantime there are a couple things you can do:

Continue to pray for DACA recipients, their families and all of our immigrant community   members who are at risk.

If you can, plan to join us for an interfaith prayer every Monday Morning DACA Prayers at 9:30. RSVP link:
