Catholics to Pray, Fast, Take Action for Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON--The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Migration and bishops who will attend the Mass on the Border and "Mission for Migrants," in Nogales, Arizona, March 31-April 1, invite all Catholics to unite in prayer, fasting and action for immigration reform.

Catholics can join in prayer with the bishops who will visit the desert in Nogales in several ways:

By following the Mass led by Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston and brother bishops in memory of the thousands of migrants who have lost their lives trying to cross the Arizona desert. The Mass will be live streamed. Supporters also might participate in a Mass or prayer service in their own communities. The Mass in Nogales will be celebrated at 9 a.m. (PT) /12 p.m. (ET).

By advocating for immigration reform sending an electronic postcard to members of Congress. Or by using the toll free number: 1-855-589-5698 to "support a path to citizenship and oppose the SAFE Act."

By fasting in solidarity with migrants and immigrants. Fasting turns peoples' attention away from their own needs and allows them to open their hearts to the suffering of others.

By spreading the word via social media, using the Twitter hashtag #BorderMass and following the latest developments on Facebook and Twitter.

More resources for prayers and Masses, a link to the electronic postcards and the Mass on the Border live stream can be found at: www.justiceforimmigrants.org. More information on the event can be found at: www.usccb.org/about/migration-policy/mass-on-the-border.cfm

The Mass on the Border will be streamed live on April 1, at 9 a.m. (PT) /12 p.m. (ET). It can be followed on YouTube at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqY9GcA6lCA
