“Pray for the DREAM” Events
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Justice for Immigrants (JFI) Campaign will be holding its “Pray for the DREAM” events from September 18th through October 9th. Dioceses, parishes and other faith groups will be planning events and/or incorporating petitions, homilies, and prayers into the Sunday Masses in support of DREAM Act eligible students and youth.
The JFI Campaign is looking to coordinate events and Masses in support of immigrant youth with a special focus on Sunday, September 25th. The goal is to continue the call for the DREAM Act while also urging President Obama to protect vulnerable populations, including DREAM Act-eligible youth and parents of U.S. citizen children, from unwarranted detention and deportation.
