Inspired to accompany the immigrant community right now? Here are some projects already happening:
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Parishes across the Diocese offer English as a Second Language (ESL) Courses for those seeking to learn or improve their proficiency in English. This is especially helpful for those who are interested in applying for citizenship. Reach out to the office of advocacy in order to be made aware of ESL instructor training programs taking place soon.
Novena to Shut Down Adelanto
The immigrant detention center in Adelanto presents a moral quandary for our people. This center is infamous for poor conditions and a rash of deaths related to those behind bars. Join us in praying a novena to shut down Adelanto starting on. Interested in having your prayer group or parish be involved? Here’s the tool kit that includes the calendar for your vicariate and the brochure of the novena right here.
Get in touch with your local elected official on these important issues facing our immigrant community.
