Loretto marched in El Paso and St. Louis to honor immigrants and refugees on June 20, World Refugee Day.

Maureen Fiedler wrote in a National Catholic Reporter blog on June 22, “We may be a nation of immigrants, but we have often not been a nation welcoming immigrants.” Read more.

Loretto stands with immigrants. We welcome them in Texas, California, Colorado, Missouri, Kentucky and all along the east coast, wherever we are. We marched to honor them.

All those who are able and in the Denver area Saturday, June 30, are urged to attend the “Families Belong Together Denver Rally” beginning at 10 a.m. at Civic Center Park, across from the State Capitol.
