After beginning our pilgrimage Wednesday night, we have almost reached El Paso. We spent last night and this morning enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Today we'll drive the final hours to El Paso where we will join with Catholic leaders from all across to country to for a teach-in and public action.
In preparing for this journey, we heard from many of you who wanted to join us but could not for various reasons. We want you to know that we still need your support.
We invite you to join us this Saturday, October 12 at 6pm CST to gather and pray in solidarity with migrants and protesters at the border as we demand immigration justice.
At the same time our 70+ pilgrims are at the southern border, local leaders will be meeting in two places to speak out against unjust immigration policies:
Chicago: outside of the ICE Detention Facility - 101 W Congress Pkwy, Chicago, IL 60605
Maywood: outside St. Eulalia's - 1845 S 9th Ave, Maywood, IL 60153

A Letter From PP4H Member Anthony Williams
Dear family and friends,
On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, Byron and I will begin a journey to the southern boarder to join hundreds of ordinary people in solidarity to peacefully protest our country’s immigration policies.
We both serve as board members of an organization called the Coalition for Spiritual and Public Leadership (CSPL). CSPL advocates the spirit of the gospel being incorporated into the policy-making of country on all levels of government. In this cause, we will be joining hundreds of like-minded people from around the country in letting our leaders know that the current treatment of immigrants is inhumane and unacceptable.
We will kick off our Chicago departure with a mass at Holy Name Cathedral at 5:15 pm on Wednesday, October 9th. The mass will be celebrated by Cardinal Cupich. Following the mass, we will have a blessing before departure. We invite you to join us at the mass and blessing. Parking is available at Moody Bible.
If you are unable to join us in person, please pray for our safe travels. Most importantly, pray for all of those who seek refuge from across the world from living conditions that are reprehensible.
Let us all get off the sidelines and advocate for social justice in all matters!
God be with you all.
Anthony and Byron
