Men Religious Participate in Catholic Day of Action on Immigration

Over 400 Catholics, including a number of men religious – Franciscan, Columban, Jesuit, de la Salle Christian Brother, and others – participated in a Sept. 4 Day of Action in Newark, New Jersey, to protest federal government policies and practices that traumatize immigrant children, particularly the policy of child and family detention.

Cardinal Joseph Tobin, CSsR, Archbishop of Newark, offered a prayer for the group. Learn more on the campaign page here, and see photos posted by the Franciscan Action Network here.
