“Family unity is a cornerstone of our American immigration system and a foundational element of Catholic teaching.”
Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration
In every Catholic church, a candle perpetually burns near the tabernacle, a reminder of the presence of the Body of Christ.
We invite you, as a member of the Body of Christ, to join in this ancient tradition as we keep vigil with immigrant families—those separated at our southern border, over continents by forced migration, or torn apart by deportation.
Keep this candle burning in your window as you continue to keep watch and pray.
May we, the Body of Christ, be a light in the darkness.
