Pray for the DREAM (Act) and Support our Immigrant Students
The Texas Catholic Conference is encouraging parishes across Texas and the country to participate in the ‘Pray for the DREAM (Act)’ Sunday on September 25, 2011. This national effort seeks to raise public awareness to the obstacles facing immigrant students and to alert parishioners to ways they can support struggling students earn a college degree and eventual employment.
Churches are gathering to raise awareness and support through a host of activities (e.g., petition drives, prayers, vigils, homilies, and more) between September 18 through October 9, with the biggest focus being Sunday, September 25.
To help your parish organize projects and events, the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops' Justice for Immigrants' has created an online resource kit available here.
