Immigration Reform

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Archdiocese is to holding an immigration weekend on September 28th and 29th.  The weekend is a call to action by the Catholic Church to seek common sense immigration reform for the United States.

Archbishop Carlson has sent all parishes a letter encouraging congregations to speak about immigration reform and Catholic social teachings.

An Interfaith Pilgrimage will take place October 5, from 10-2pm on Grand Avenue, and a “Pilgrimage of the Heart” is planned for October 13, from 5-6pm at Cardinal Rigali Center.
