Archbishop Gomez Urges Action On Immigration
These are challenging times in our country right now with the new Presidential orders on immigrants and refugees.
To assist us in supporting our brothers and sisters, our Office of Government and Community Relations and our Office of Life, Justice and Peace have created a special webpage that contains important resources for parishes, families and individuals. On this new page: archla.org/immigration and below you will find resources to help you learn more about the issues and resources that will enable you to get involved in your community and in communicating with your elected officials.
